Didgital theremometers and hydrometers are better than stick ons. I don’t see the problem with putting the baby in the big cage already. My water monitor did fine in his adult siz cage as a baby and juvenile. But do you already have the 40gal?

 Tegu Questions

yeah I still have the 40 gal I had previous lizards making room for a tegu. I was doing measurements in the room for the cage do you thing I can get away with a 2 1/2 foot wide cage I can make it 7 feet long the tegu will have daily free roaming around the house if not I will just make it 3 feet. 7x3x3 is what’s recommended right? and thank for the response I tried every where for help thanks again.

For a b&w tegu a cage of 6x3x2...they don’t use much height. But bigger is always better so if you want to build a 7x3x3 your tegu will have a lot of room which is good. But my friend told me a blue tegu will need a cage of 8x3x2 but I read that they need a cage of 8x4x2 everybody just build theirs diffrent.
