 My Norbert :(

Yesterd`ay evening I had put him in his feeding tub in my room, by his cage, and was feeding him. I had to run downstairs for two minutes, literally two minutes, and when I came by he was nowhere to be found.
I tore apart my room, every inch, my closet, bathroom, then started looking in the hall way and other bedrooms because it would be so easy for him to slip under the door.

I am so upset :( I really hope he doesn’t get hurt until I find him.

It was pretty cold last night, so I turned on the heat lamp in his cage, and hung another one up so that he could get to it by his cage. I dont know what else to do Dx

And suggestions?

Put a plate of food out and keep a sharp eye out. He is somewhere close to where he got out.

Leaving food out is just to make sure he is still there, and if your monitor got out that many times you need to secure your encloser better then what it is. You can do an old Cajun trick. Put out flour and follow the foot prints.

You can also try setting up a basking area in the center of the room. The tegu is going to look for a hide spot, behind or under the fridge, dishwasher, ect,ect. They will also seek out places like this because it tends to be warm, ie the fridge bottom puts off heat. He will seek out warmth so by putting the basking area up more than likley he will gravitate towards it.

I set up a basking light right by his cage. The next day I walked in and he was basking :’D No missing tail, toes, no injuries at all. I was so happy.
of course when I took a step towards him he bolted to where he was hiding (under my dresser)
But I was able to get him out and he’s fine.


Woo! He scared me!

Recent pic of Norbert! Growing like crazy, doing so well. Being so sweet.

He’s 6 and a half months old now, and is showing slight cage aggression. Not really aggression because no matter what I do he wont bite, but he runs all around and wags his tail and huffs. But as soon as he’s out he’s such a sweetie.
