This week's Creature Feature is Yara! Yara is an Argentine black and white tegu who was found abandoned outdoors. She is about one year old and very sweet. She’s a little unsure of new people, but as long as you go slow, she warms up to you quickly. She LOVES her food and even eats veggies we sneak into the turkey meatballs. If you’re not sure about building a huge cage, check out grow tents! They can work great for tegus and are easy to set up. Tegus are large lizards that need a more experienced keeper but they're very smart and personable!

If you're interested in adopting Yara, you can visit Be Wild Reptile Rescue to fill out an application. You can also follow them on Instagram and Facebook for animal updates and behind the scenes pictures.
