View Full Version : my tegu is changing colors

My tegu started out as just black and gold but now it is turning all white . Should it do that ? about an inch of its tail is solid white and the black is fading to like a grey , why ?

tegu's tend to "brighten" as they age. Perhaps a picture would help :D

Is he ready to shed ?

That was my 1st thought as well and yes a pic may be more helpful ...

Maybe incomplete or stuck shed ...

I just went through a shed with Gooch and his colors got dull but he is now finished and he is brighter but he is not all white. The color change that he had was more of a dull greyish color from the old skin trying to come off.
