Tegu vs Broccoli

Tegus can eat small amount of broccoli without health implications, but they should not be stables in their diet.

It is recommended to only feed broccoli to tegus sporadically. In terms of nutrition, broccoli is healthy but it contains substances such as oxalic acid, which become harmful to reptiles in larger quantities.

Better alternatives

Asparagus, cabbage, leek, and greens such as chicory, collard and dandelion make for good alternatives to broccoli which can be fed to tegus regularly.
