Welcome Andy,

The tegu in the picture looks like a Colombian Black and White Tegu. It is a different specieas than an Argentine Black and White Tegu.

Love both animals!! The grumpy Tegu looks like a female - is that correct? Do you need me to take the pup for you? What a cutie pie.

Thankyou, yes she's is certainly female, I have two ladies now.
The pup is a complete loon, taking some house training I can tell you

Hey!! I want some waves! ...wait...are those like Royal waves or ocean?

Hang in there with the potty-training....not that it will necessarily matter. :rolleyes::)

can you post more pics please and give me an idea on size?

as I believe you could be mistaken, looking at the pic more closely I believe you have a male Colombian.

OK will do later as I'm at work. That would be interesting as I'm the third owner and both places have sexed as female.

Its really really hard to tell due to lack of full size jowls....... but females usually look slimmer in the face with an altogether more delicate and lighter look.
