The Colombian Black, Or Colombian Black n White

The Colombian Black, Or also called the Colombian Black n White. Here are some pictures of the Colombian tegu. There is another color to these tegus as well, the Colombian Gold. The Colombian tegus are much harder to tame. They also do not show the intelligence of the Argentine tegus.

Well, then, maybe that answers the question I posed to you in a recent the Colombian Tegu a good lizard for my nine year old (always supervised, of course!)? After reading this and some other information, I am thinking I should hold out for an Argentine B & W. What do y'all think?

Sorry, I have been real busy.

The Argentines make much better pets by far. They tame down more. I would recommend the Argentine tegu for your son. The Colombians tend to be harder to tame.

The one in this picture is tame now. But that does not mean he will stay this way. As he grows older he may not be tame at all. Argentines get more tame with age. I have over 50 reptiles now, my Argentine tegus are the only ones I would call 100% child safe.

It's not so much that they are devils. Columbians are different.They are much more wild. Capable of understanding you're not a threat after awhile, but not really able to view you as an aid. My tegus see me as something to look forward to, they either get some attention, get to explore, get to eat, get to harrass my cat, or get to bask in the front yard while pa does some woodwork. They quickly become the center of attention to your neighbors, friends, and family, and become the receptor of the family love VERY quickly. I come home to kiss the tegus before the fiancee. I honestly call them "the kids". I make turkey, shark steak, papaya souflee for the tegus, and fix top Ramen for myself. THey are amazing and you will spoil them rotten. The personalities are incredible, and anyone who debates that they are capable of personality is crazy and should come meet APollo. He's a drama king, a sweet heart, and complete HAM! Hold out and nab one of Bobby's tegs. I like the B&W more (good thing they can't read) than my red, and still await to delve into the Chacoan, and possibly a blue, but from what I've seen, they are a little defensive like COlumbians. Good luck Ernie, you're in for a wild ride Mr. Toad.

I understand what you guys are saying about the colombian and your right. I like some a little wild and I am looking for some just like APollo by the way eats much better then you do but they are our babies, right. as you know I have been at the varnyard reading and learning a l o t.
I am sold. I am going to get in touch with Bobby sometime this week.
I will tell him you referred me
and thank you as always
