Name's Galen. I just picked up a tamed B&W Tegu. Seems to be a teenager (2' head-to-tail). This is a lizard on my bucket list for some time.

While this is my first Tegu; I been researching for over a year.

To appease the wife I had to give up a very tamed Banana Pinstripe Ball Python and a Children's Python.

Now I am left with the following:
• B&W Tegu (name TBD)
• White Diamond Super Russo Ball Python (Sugar)
• GHI Mojave Ball Python (Shadow)
• Senegal Parrot (Phoenix)
• Electic Blue Alcara breeding aquaium
• Pleco, Bichir, and Oscar Aquarium

I already learned a lot reading the posts. I hope to continue to learn even more.

Welcome, great site, glad you've been reading oosts. Sorry you had to give up some others. Where's your new tegu from?

Yeah it does sucks that I had to give up 2-for-1. However, the tamed Banana Pinstripe went to a friend that just lost a Ball Python, literally the same day. Bitter sweet to say the least, but things worked out in the end.

I purchased the Tegu from the Sacramento Reptile Show. I cannot remember the vendor, but he is a regular there that usually sells cages and accessories. However, he had a small stash of lizards and snakes.
