    in 2016, Murphy et al. wrote "Cryptic, Sympatric Diversity in Tegu Lizards of the Tupinambis teguixin Group (Squamata, Sauria, Teiidae) and the Description of Three New Species".

    The authors are dividing the Colombian tegu into 4 species based on morphological and molecular differences. Interesting read, see if you can figure out what you have.
