    C95D6CF6-6057-4E4E-A2C3-382F22BC899A.jpeg I bought this Tegu three weeks ago at a reptile show, the seller did not know what kind it was and it was kept inside a large plastic container under the table he was selling from. The gender is female, I am wondering what type of Tegu this is? Age is 1 year supposedly.

    Definitely a black and white. If he has an orange to orangish belly...wild caught florida. The burnt look on the nose makes me wonder if it might be a blue mix though. But definitely argentine black and white
