I am getting my first tegu on tuesday he is an arg b/w tegu about 6 inches long, I have his cage setup with 3" of compressed wood pulp topped off with 3" of sphagnum moss, I will get the basking temp to 110-120 as I have read and will be feeding it crickets and mealworms dusted with mineral all w/d3,does all of this sound right to start off with? Also what other foods are good to feed that size and what should be the min temp at night without wanting him to go into hibernation? Any responces would be appreciated, thanks
