Can tegus eat apple?

Yes, tegus can eat apples and it’s okay to feed fruits as part of a balanced diet. Fruits high in fructose should be limited due to their high sugar content and risk of leading to obesity. Moreover, you need to make sure to remove any apple seeds before serving because they are hard to digest and may lead to impaction. Other than that, apple is a healthy fruit choice in moderation.

Adult Argentine tegu should have no more than 10% of their diet consisting of fruit. Juvenile tegu and adult Colombian tegu should be fed fruits even more sporadically.
