The heat lamp setup really works. My dwarf tegu crammed herself up between some shelving and the wall in the bathroom and there was no way I could get to her without tearing out the shelving in my apartment. So I tried setting up a heating pad with a pillow case on top. Low and behold, the nest day I went into the bathroom and she was curled up inside the pillow case!
::just got a new 16 inch argentine tegu and was keeping him in a horse troft in our screen porch... its 2 feet tall ( i heard a troft didnt need a screen lid because it was two feet high) but some how he got out 2 times but i found him in the screen porch both times. two nights ago someone left open the door to the house..... he didnt come out yesterday so i thought he was just burying himself and when he didnt come out again today i got worried so i looked through the whole entire troft and i know he is not there.... not in the porch either... so the only place he could be is in my two story house!!
::please does anyone have any suggestions as how to find him?
:Use food to bait him out,ususlly cracked chicken egg works. Be patient, just let the egg avalible same time of the day for a few
:days in the same area. Tegu is very smart lizard, they learn it is time for its meal fairly quickly. Good luck and keep us post.
