    Default Whats the difference between these two tegus?

    I was into getting a black and white Tegu but they cost a fortune here in Sweden.. The "golden" Tegu was much cheaper. Whats the main difference between them and other tegus also? Im taking about behavior, size etc.

    Hi progrmor. Welcome to our Tegu forum family. The gold and the black and white Tegus are from Columbia. They are much cheaper and they don't get as big. If you get a hatchling that Tegu can become very tame, too, with a lot of handling. They also don't hibernate and some of them don't like to eat fruits and veggies like the Argentine Tegus do. Now there also is a black and white Argentine Tegu. Here are the differences in the black and white Argentine and the Columbian Tegu.

    Argentine Tegu:

    Columbian Tegu: When you click on this link you have to wait a few seconds until the right photo comes up.

    This is the difference between them two:

    The Argentine has two:

    The Columbian has one :
