    I was spraying the cage down and she decided she wanted a sip.

    My wife filmed a few moments while giggling the whole time. I can't blame her. I thought it was hilarious too. (Click the pic below for video.)

    The tegu's mate hates me though. I was spraying his cage and all he could do was come out, see me, and charge in attempt to kill me. 24 inches of raw fury in that one.

    She's doing great. She paired with a male twice and no longer is accepting him so hopefully in a few months we'll have an eggsac.

    So do the males eventually get those big cheeks? I have seen some vids on youtube where these tegus have really enlarged cheeks (like bugs Bunny....) Or is it due to them being overfed and obese?

    Both. Males have very large jowls. That said many people over feed their tegus and they get too fat.
