What now? I needed animals that you can see so there were the cordylus tripidosteri. And a friend gave me small geckos. The little zoo was ready.
I’m the one behind teju.info. There isn’t much to say about me… it’s about the animals so I’ll just introduce myself shortly.
Sports...of course I like sports.
I’ve been diving scuba diving (also in waters in Germany) and riding racing cycles and in 2007 I started kiting.
The kiting class ended with 6 stitches on my knee... a wound caused by a shell… the only one in that water.
I got to know the exotic animals through a friend that had had bearded dragons for a long time. I, like many others, started with bearded dragons. I soon found out that I wanted something different from everyone else. I wanted it to be 1 to 1.5m at the most. I didn’t want the colors to fade when the animals grow older.
I first thought about the argus guana. The store had adult and young animals. After thinking about it for a long time I decided to buy an argus guana. Unfortunately I thought for suuuch a long time that they didn’t offer any anymore. But they did have black and white tegus. Not very big but they looked almost prettier.
So I informed myself, bought books, got on the dealer’s nerves and ended up buying two animals.
Now they were there… 2 baby tegus (Theo and Hauti) in a bag. At first they were very shy or aggressive. I left them alone and they developed and got more calm.
Then the first winter came and the animals went sleeping… The bearded dragons sometimes take a break, too. Now they were there… the big and pretty but empty terrariums.
Well if there weren’t animals in need… 2 more tegus that were neglected and wild. I fed them and they became friendly animals.
Then Molly and Snow came… our pretty females.
But that’s it! Really! …or not?
What else do I do? Since I own my house I found out how much I love exotic animals. Bamboos and palm trees can be found in my yard. A friend calls me “Palmito” cause there are winterproof palm trees, yuccas and cactusses everywhere.
Well, that’s it for now…
