    I want to start work on a breeding project soon involving tegus with the least amount of white as possible. If any of you own a tegu with little white, please post pictures below.

    Also, contact Hector's Habitat and Tegusonly for potential of such individuals. Good luck.

    As little white as possible. It doesn’t have to be all black.

    Ask Rod Irwin if he's got anything like that. Typically most of his are black and white with varying degrees of firebelly, but my male from him, Hatch, is pretty dark so who knows if he's got something darker. Also, there's a guy by the name of Domenic that I know of who I've done business with and had great experiences, he seems to know a lot of other reptile people. I know he has red tegu babies right now, but he has a shop and might know of where you can find that, if he doesn't have it. Pm me for links to their ads.

    Btw, this is Hatch (not for sale, just trying to get an idea of what you are looking for). Not sure if he's dark enough, his tail is pretty crisp but his dark stripes are wide and his white near his head is more "off white".[​IMG]

    Rodney’s WC argies range to some very low white.

    Here's Talia, who I believe was probably also WC (she has a bit of the "firebelly" going on, but I am unsure of her origins as she is a rescue). She's definitely one of the lower-white Argies I've ever seen.

    It does seem mildly odd to me that when I rescued her a few years ago, I was told that she was an "ugly" tegu because high-white was the more desirable coloration. I've always thought she's beautiful, especially her sugar-skull face markings.
