    Don't have a picture unfortunately but I named him Blue because

    1) He is a purple Tegu, being 56.25% blue
    2) Reminds me of the movie Old School......"Your my boy Blue!" :)
    3) My wife likes the Jurassic Park movies
    4) I have already used all of the Greek God names with past reptiles lol.

    If only he had any blue color in him at all......I would hate to list those 4 reasons every time somebody asks me why I named him Blue ;):)

    Some do......unfortunately most seem to not show any blue at all :( Some say it is just a color morph of the black and white tegu while some say it is a totally different subspecies.

    I believe they are separate if it was as simple
    as a morph you couldn’t see physical difference between male and females of blue and BW. The most noteable being their size and head shape

    Like crossing reds blues and B/W this isn’t creating morphs like underground reptiles likes to advertise. It’s just crossing, outside of a Albino I don’t see any morphs. The high white and or high blacks are line breed for it

    If we want true morphs we’re going to need to see imports again and get some fresh blood in. Most morphs originate in the wild.
