Black and White Tegus for Sale
This is the largest species of Tegu (similar to monitor lizards) which live in east and central south America. These Tegu reptiles will feed on anything smaller than themselves including birds, tortoises and rodents.
Tegus have a highly acidic stomach that can dissolve shells and animal bones. They tend to be highly intelligent reptiles and are said to seek human attention.
Tegus can grow up to one meter in size and need need large enclosures with warm tropical temperatures. People buy these reptiles not realizing how large they can grow – and how expensive it can be to feed them. Unwanted Tegus have been dumped all over the Everglades in Florida where they are causing problems in the ecosystem.
