    Why are some people against creating hybrid tegus?

    Why do some people seem so adamant about not crossing different types of tegus (or other animals for that fact?) Especially considering all of the beautiful kinds we've gotten like the purple and blues.

    New juvenile tegu , out of control

    So I just got a brand new juvenile Argentine black and white. They said he was captive bred and "skittish", but when he shows up he's completely out of control ( attempted biting, flailing, running ) and his stomach was sunken in, he looked like he hadn't eaten in a while. Eventually I calmed...

    Gender?

    Is there any way I can find out the gender of my tegu? The vet "thinks" it's probably a girl. We bought it December 2018 from a pet store, the store bought it in August from a reptile show. The vet thinks our tegu is approximately 20 months. I measured him/ her today and it was 3 feet 2 inches.
