Rollin, your vids are awesome :D Its great to see a bigger teg in action - a taster of whats to come for my guy
Can I answer some questions? I hope I get them right - I love talking about tegus :)
"My God What Type Of Tegu Is He??"
Argentine black and white (or red?)
"Oooo. I'm thinking fo getting a moniter lizard. Correct me you must, but i assume that is what tegu is"
Not monitors, but teiids - they look similar, but are new world lizards. They can lose their tails, unlike monitors.
what does it eat?
how big does it get?
Males - up to about 4.5 foot, females up to about 3.5 foot. Big but not as domineering as some monitors ;)
what kind of incloser do you need?
they keep theirs outdoors all year round - theyw ill usually hibernate underground for several months of the year. Indoors - 8'x3'x3' is the best, though if you allow a lot of roaming outside the cage and deep substrate for digging then you could get away with a 6'x3'x3' Bigger is always better ;)
Come back Rollin! We need more pics and chat!
