Try finding the costs of acrylic at the closest acrylic store near you. That would probably be your best bet is either cementing pieces of acrylic together or using a wooden frame and screws to hold it together, or both! For a top you could use chicken wire and a wooden frame. If you don't mind having only one viewing area then you could use wood for the rest of the enclosure and only have one wall acrylic. That would be the cheapest but it will still be rather expensive. You cant really get big creatures such as a tegu and not realize that your probably going to be spending a pretty penny here and there. You could also build in a section for the Tegu to swim as they are excellent swimmers and you can add fish and other crustaceans into their diet. Use your imagination! Thats half the fun is creating an amazing environment for the creature your keeping.
