Is this a normal color?

Hi this is my Argentina black and white tegu named Spaz. I was wondering if it’s normal for them to be that white? All the pics I seen they look like they have more black on them, I am just curious.

The brown smudge on the nose tip, the high white color, and black teardrop near eye typify what may be a regionally distinct or human harnessed form of the Argentine Giant Tegu. They are typically more expensive than the ususually expensive AGT.

Looks like a blue tegu to me or a hybrid. The burnt nose, the black tears, and the tan head.

Anyway, no matter what type it is they have many color variations. Some are high white and others high black. It's just genetics.
