    My almost two month Female Argentine B&W Tegu is shedding for her third time in her life. But her belly has always been like a yellow color. Is that the normal belly color for a hatchlink B&W? Will it change in the future or is the belly for B&W always that color?

    She is a S. Fl. firebelly. Her belly will be some shade of orange-red. Very very pretty.

    Glad is not something that I need to worry about. I got her in June from UndergroundReptiles in South Florida. I guess I’m lucky to have this Fire Belly morph. Can’t wait to see how she will look in a few years.

    I'm sure she'll look great once she's older, my bluexbwxred from underground also has a fire belly, although it's more broken up with white and far more red-orange than a yellow.

    Yeah it’s pretty common from the Florida wild caughts which I’m sure a lot of breeders build to their breeding stock of bw with.
