Can Tegus Eat Cucumbers?

Tegu vs Cucumber

Yes, tegus can safely consume cucumber. These green vegetables are around 96% water with a little fiber, so they are not the most highly nutritious food out there for your lizard, but they are perfectly safe to eat.

Still, there are a lot of better options out there for your tegu and it is important to offer a varied diet that includes different types of fruits and vegetables as well as meat.

If you are choosing to feed your tegu cucumber, do so sporadically and make sure to pick organic cucumbers that are free from pesticides and do not have a lot of seeds in them (if they do, remove the seeds before serving).

You do not need to peel cucumbers, but you may want to cut them into small pieces to riduce the risk of a choking.
