Can I keep a Tegu if I live in a cold place?


Your house or apartment is probably heated, so the cold will not be that bad if the Tegu is kept in an enclosure inside the house. So yes, you can definitely keep a Tegu even if the temperature outside is cold.

He will also need supplemental heating like a heat lamp. It is important that you keep a thermometer to monitor the heat in his enclosure, and allow him to have a colder and a warmer area to move about in.
