Hey guys, just wondering if I should feed my tegu with the shell on the egg, he has had boiled egg before just without the shell. He is 15"-18" Do you think he would take it well?

Thanks in advance, Curty.

What I mean is, are there any benefits?

Yes. Eggshell is made of calcium.

I give my big lizards - two tegus and a monitor - whole eggs (usually raw).

I find the monitor will eat the eggs shell and all; the tegus will break the shells, eat the egg out of them and eat a few scraps of shell but not much.

I only give him raw once in a while, I don't know why because he loves it. I was just worried about the shell because he is small at the moment.
