Poate să mănânce ton?

Tegus sunt omnivori și, ca atare, pot mânca pește ca parte a unei diete variate.

Tonul trebuie hrănit cu moderație, deoarece contine tiaminaza care poate reduce absorbtia vitaminei B1, dar în rest este o alegere destul de sănătoasă.

Este cel mai bine să hrănești fileuri de ton crude, dar poți hrăni ocazional ton conservat, cu condiția să fie conservată în saramură și nu în ulei, veți dori să clătiți sub apă pentru a elimina orice exces de sare.

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

Fapta vs. Ton

Per total, este perfect în regulă să hrăniți cu ton șopârlele tegu, although there are better options in terms of fish and other protein sources (ca pui crud sau curcan).

Dacă intenționați să hrăniți ton cu tegu, faceți acest lucru doar sporadic și de preferință sub formă de file de pește crud. Prea mult ton poate avea probleme de sănătate din cauza nivelurilor ridicate de mercur.

Better alternatives

Hrănirea peștilor albi mai mici întregi poate fi, de asemenea, o opțiune mai bună decât tonul, pentru că tegu-ul tău va avea acces la toți nutrienții din organele și oasele de pește, inclusiv calciu și minerale care altfel ar fi greu de obținut din surse naturale de hrană.

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 reptilinkuri, a type of commercially prepared sausage link tailored specifically to meet a reptile’s needs, and consisting of whole prey animals containing meat, bone, 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.

Over time, thiaminase can lead to thiamine deficiency, which can cause neurological damage and even death in severe cases.

Prin urmare, it is recommended to feed cooked tuna to tegus as cooking neutralizes thiaminase.

Can I feed canned tuna fish to my tegu?

While some tegu owners have reported feeding their tegus canned tuna fish, it is generally not recommended as canned tuna often contains added salt and preservatives that may not be healthy for your pet.

If you do choose to feed canned tuna to your tegu, be sure to use tuna that is packed in water, not oil, as oil can be difficult for your tegu to digest.

It is important to note that canned tuna should not be a regular part of your tegu’s diet and should be fed in moderation.

Is it okay to feed fresh raw tuna to my tegu?

Fresh raw tuna can be a good source of protein for your tegu, but it is important to note that some species of fish, including tuna, may contain an enzyme called thiaminase.

Thiaminase destroys a reptile’s stores of vitamin B1 (thiamin), which can cause neurological damage and even death if not caught in time.

Cooking the fish neutralizes this enzyme, but if you choose to feed your tegu raw fish, be sure to only use fresh, high-quality fish that is free of parasites and other contaminants.

What other types of fish can I feed my tegu?

Other types of fish that can be fed to tegus include salmon, tilapia, cod, and haddock.

These fish are generally safe for tegus to eat and are good sources of protein.

It is important to note that fish should only make up a small part of your tegu’s diet and should be fed in moderation.

În plus, be sure to avoid feeding your tegu any fish that may contain thiaminase, such as bass, somn, herring, mackerel, smelt, and whitefish.

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

Freezing fresh fish can help to kill any parasites that may be present and can make the fish safer for your tegu to eat.

If you choose to feed your tegu fresh fish, be sure to freeze it for at least 24 hours before serving it.

This will help to ensure that the fish is safe and free from any harmful parasites or contaminants that could harm your pet.
