Tegu vs Sweet and Hot Peppers

Ideally, serve your tegu lizards organic yellow, orange or red bell peppers raw and cut into small pieces, without the seeds.

Green bell peppers are also an option but won’t pack as much nutrion (red peppers contain 11 times more beta-carotene and 1.5 times more vitamin C than green peppers).

Can tegus eat hot peppers?

Some types of lizards such as iguanas and bearded dragons, as well as turtles, have been observed enjoying chili peppers without any issues.

It is therefore safe to assume tegus can also eat hot peppers, although you may want to feed them in moderation. Bell peppers are also a valid option.
