Pode ocupado comer atum?

Tegus são onívoros e, como tal, podem comer peixe como parte de uma dieta variada.

O atum deve ser alimentado com moderação, porque contém tiaminase que pode reduzir a absorção de vitamina B1, mas de resto é uma escolha bastante saudável.

Isso é melhor para alimentar filés de atum crus, mas você pode alimentar atum enlatado ocasionalmente, desde que seja conservado em salmoura e não em óleo, você vai querer enxaguar sob água para remover qualquer excesso de sal.

Alta qualidade, wet cat food or dog food containing tuna may also be an option for tegus.

Ação contra atum

No geral, não há problema em alimentar lagartos tegu com atum, embora there are better options in terms of fish and other protein sources (tal como frango cru ou peru).

Se você está planejando alimentar o seu tegu com atum, só o fazem esporadicamente e preferencialmente sob a forma de filetes de peixe cru. Excesso de atum pode causar problemas de saúde devido a altos níveis de mercúrio.

Better alternatives

Alimentar peixes brancos menores inteiros também pode ser uma opção melhor do que o atum, porque seu tegu terá acesso a todos os nutrientes dos órgãos e ossos do peixe, incluindo cálcio e minerais que, de outra forma, seriam difíceis de obter de fontes alimentares naturais.

Unshelled seafood can also be a great source of calcium and a substitute for whole prey.

Another great source of whole prey for tegus is reptilinks, a type of commercially prepared sausage link tailored specifically to meet a reptile’s needs, and consisting of whole prey animals containing meat, osso, connective tissue, and organs and all the essential nutrients a tegu needs.

Can I feed tuna to my tegu?

Tuna can be fed to tegus, but it should be done with caution due to the presence of thiaminase in some species of tuna.

Thiaminase is an enzyme that breaks down thiamine, a crucial B-vitamin for reptiles.

Should I freeze fresh fish before feeding it to my tegu?
