I wish I knew. Your red sure looks like a male to me, it he's the aggressive one.

Perhaps the B&W female is bolixed up by not having her own secluded nest site and pribably a first-time breeder.

If possible, I'd separate them.

Maybe provide her with a shallow pan of warm water and let her decide. The concern is more eggs to be laid that may pass or get stuck. The situation is odd enough that might be wirth taking her put and feeling for more eggs. If you detect egg/s then might need a run to the vet if she doesn't pass it soon.

Ugh...not good. Yesterday morning I went and checked on them and they had turned black and were a bit smelly. I placed them all in the freezer, not sure what is going on with my female. Provided her with a large soak tub but she hasnt used it

Possibly infertile eggs? Maybe those two just don't match. It happens and isn't your fault. Bring the eggs to your vet and seperate the tegus. She may be stressed. Please note that I am a brand new tegu owner. Try to keep it quiet and not too bright. check temps and humidity as well.

Thank you, really bummed out. Male is out and she is in her burrow.
Don't worry! I've heard of tegus being depressed after losing eggs if they're fertile, so try to comfort her. Don't take her out of her burrow though. it should be her private place. Trust me. Us girls need our private time when something like this happens. (humor helps everything! ^-^)
