Thread: Which tegu morph should i get red or blue

  1. #1

    Default Which tegu morph should i get red or blue

    Sorry its been a while since i have posted its just that school has kept me busy but im getting off soon. Anyways I love red tegus the way they look and the same for the blues I do not know which to choose is their any differences between them to like size I read that reds get a bit bigger. Also as far as breeding is concerned what happens when you breed blues and reds cause I saw UG reptiles got purple tigers they look amazing but expensive

    I like the striking look of the blues same way I like the color difference between the black and whites. If I had to choose between the red and blue I would choose blue. I have also read the blues stay slightly smaller but the are still a large lizard. Sorry I know nothing about breeding.

    The reds will get slightly larger and with the breeding of reds and blues you will get hybrids like this ImageUploadedByTapatalk 21370188325.029621.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk 21370188337.931275.jpg

    UG's purple tigers are something other than a normal red and normal blue pairing. There are newer lines of blues being bred that are a bit larger, and I've seen some smaller reds.

    Actually, there is no size difference whatsoever.

    Just wanted to add that Reds and Blues are not morphs but separate species. Morphs are the same species bred for different colors and patterns. Also UG's Tigers are from Red/Blue het Albino pairings.

    I believe UG was breeding red with albino blues. That is how they got 'hets' and the albino they call purple. I did talk to him about it at the Daytona Expo, but it has been almost a year.
