Ya just cant do it, and you shoulnd't even try.

You can.

The colombians are not nearly the great pets the argentines are though.

All the tegus sub-species can be interbred.

Email Varnyard. His name is Bobby and he is one of the biggest tegu breeders in the states.

Then YOU can decide who's full of it and who's not.

Bobby is the Moderator for the Tegu forum here at Fauna.

I don't believe anyone has ever successfully bred this combination "Colombian/Argentine", and have anything viable come of it - RedxBlue has been done started by Ron St. Piere, Argentine B&W x Red has been done by Bert Langerwerf last season.

So can you crossbreed them ? - Yes if they hook up.

Can you crossbreed them and hatch out eggs ? - No - It's not been done.

All of the Tegu subspecies Cannot be interbred either.

I'm sure Bobby will chime in on this one as well...

Perhaps I should rephrase this - I'm speaking of the Tupinambis Genus of Tegu's - To my knowledge Argentine x Colombian have never been produced - If it has, than no-one has come forward.

In addition I have yet to hear of Argentine B&W x Blue being produced, although to me it would seem more feasible than the Argentine x Colombian cross as the blues IMO are more closely related to the Argentines.

Ok, I will try to answer this question. The answer is, it has never been done. The Colombian golds and Colombian black n whites have never been crossed with Argentine tegus, as far as I know of. I am not saying it cannot happen, it just has never been done yet.

The question is, why would you even want to cross the two.
