Yes, tegus can eat pineapple and it’s okay to feed exotic fruits as part of a balanced diet. Pineapples are filled with vitamin C, minerals and antioxidants which are a great addition to your tegu’s diet.
Because fruits are high in sugar, you should feed them to your tegu sporadically. Adult Argentine tegu should have no more than 10% of their diet consisting of fruit. Juvenile tegu and adult Colombian tegu should only be fed fruits sporadically.
