    Behavior change

    I just got a baby that was really nice and mellow for the first couple of weeks and now that it’s getting close to two months the attitude seems to be changing a bit and he’s a way more skittish and started to bite. I noticed he got more confident getting used to his enclosure and also having a...

    Blue Tegu Small for Age?

    Hi! We got our blue tegu, Kuku, back in Sept 2019. He was about 6-8in long and weighed less than 100 grams. He ended up brumating his first winter, and while we were worried at first, we were told that it's not unusual for hatchling tegus to brumate their first winter sometimes. I had been...

    Backpacks/bags to travel with Blue Tegus?

    Hi all, I would really like to acclimate my blue tegu to the outside world and take him on walks where he can explore, but still be comfortable. I have looked a lot at different pet bag options, trying to find one that would offer enough room for the tail, have enough ventilation, and be visible...

    Tegu puberty??

    I think Saphee (young female Argentine Blue Tegu) is going into tegu puberty now... When I got her in August 2020 she was 20 grams and 12 inches and now she is over 1.2 lbs and at least 2 feet long. I've noticed signs of heightened food aggression for the past few days and I think she is getting...

    The start of Taming

    So I just got my juvenile blue tegu about 4 days ago. He has been super skittish and I've gotten him out a total of 2 times from his enclosure. The second time, he decided to potty in my hands so I put him in the bath (which was pretty positive experience wise). Both times were negative...

    Cheap blue tegus - Trustworthy?

    Hi all, I'm new to the community and have been searching for a young blue tegu recently. I found an independent breeder on Morphmarket selling 2 month old blues for $150 plus shipping, which I though was a bit strange since blue tegus usually sell for closer to $400 - $450. The breeder site is...

    Glacier tegu, Americano?

    Hello! I recently got a baby glacier tegu, and I was told that it is technically an Americano tegu. They told me it is a mix of blue and red, but mostly blue. However I can’t seem to find “Americano” Tegu info anywhere!! Has anyone heard that therm before? Is it another type of Argentine...

    Pure VS Hybrid Blues

    Hello. I’ve had some prior experience years ago with a blue tegu. I’m considering buying one sometime soonish. I enjoyed the “big but not too big” size, temperament, and of course the subtle blue coloration. I’ve been trying to look up breeders, etc, to get an idea of what I’m getting myself...
