Thanks guys, that did help. I'll quit the cold cuts and stick to bugs. I dont want them gnawing at his healing wounds though, so maybe a pinky instead. My kitten has been eating Evo canned food (it's 95% of whatever meat is in there, chicken, turkey, venison, etc) and I've been popping that in in small quantities once in a while too.

He does love his hide, he goes under it and burys himself for much of the time. Never knew they liked to dig.

As for hand feeding, I've read that it can actually cause aggression and to feed them in a separate container. Any tricks to hand feeding that will prevent him associating fingers with food in a bad way?

Good idea on the t-shirt too, that works well with the sugar gliders, not a bad idea with Icarus (that's the tegu's name) too!
