Hi Helas. Welcome to our Tegu forum family. Like bubblz has mentioned it's very hard for us to know what you saw. I don't recommend putting a Tegu into a poop because of the chemicals that are in it. But yes, they are great swimmers. They also can stay under water for a little while.

Here is someones Tegu in the pool:

I know this is not a Tegu. But they swimm like this bearded drogon in the video, too.
