I am thinking about getting a tegu. The tegu is a large lizard that gets about 3.5 feet long. There are many kinds, such as the blue tegu, the golden tegu, the argentine red tegu, the argentine black and white tegu, and the columbian black and white tegu. Tegus are among the most intelligent lizards on the planet. They can even be taught simple tricks and respond to their name. Most tegus come from South America. The red tegu is the largest, measuring up to 4.5 feet. The argentine tegus are MUCH easier to tame than their columbian cousins. Here’s some pictures with captions.Argentine black and white tegu Columbian black and white tegu Golden tegu Blue teguRed tegu
