    I apologize right now since I'm new to this, but what is the difference between the "Blues"? For example one of my local reptile stores has a Red, Black and White, and "Super" Blue Tegu. I understand the red, but what is the difference with the other two? Here's a photo (sorry, not good quality) of the "Super Blue"

    The only difference is that the blues have a lot more white then the normal black and whites they tend to be quite more beautiful

    blues are slightly smaller and have less jowls (in the male) too.

    But also sounds like the reptile shop might be trying to over sell the blues by calling them Super.

    Blues also have a black teardrop under the eye and a burnt nose as in your photo. I agree, super blue sounds like hype, gimmicky.

    Thanks everyone for the response! I asked them directly and they didn't seem to know much. A little concerning... thank you again!

    Blue tegus have different markings. Their snout will have charred looked to it. And underneath their eyes, there will black tear drop markings. Black n white won't have these
