Diet Question (Please help!)

I have a juvenile black and white tegu, I was told 4-6 months old. I’m not even sure if he’s a Colombian or Argentinian. He only seems to want to eat thawed small mice. He refuses to eat anything else and then after 2 or 3 days of not eating anything else he gets snippy so I end up giving in and feeding him more mice. Is there anything wrong with his diet being just nice for now? Not sure what to do since he won’t eat anything else. Thanks for your help! (Also can anyone tell whether he’s a Colombian or Argentinian?)

My fussy eater takes ReptiLinks but it's not a cheap solution. Very convenient though and no supplementing or mixing required.

Pretty sure he’s Argentine. Also advice about the diet I’d invest in a “nicer” meat grinder every 2- 3 months I go and get chicken,turkey,fish,a little beef, and rabbit and fruits and veggies and a little dog food too and mix it all in the grinder (besides the dog food) basically homemade reptilinks and it’s way cheaper. Cost me like 75$ for 2-3 months worth of food my my guy. Plus a frozen rat 1 to 2x a week
