Tegu Black and White basic information

The Colombian Black and White Tegu grows to about three and half feet in total length. It is a fairly heavy-bodied lizard with strong limbs and a long, powerful tail that is approximately twice as long as the body (measured from snout to vent). They are black with small irregular white or yellowish spots loosely arranged in cross-bands on the back. Dorsally the Colombian Black and White Tegus' scales are very small and smooth, giving them a satiny appearance and feel. Though there is often confusion between the Argentine Black and White Tegu and the Colombian Black and White Tegu, there is a vast difference between them. The Colombian Black and White Tegu is the most commonly seen in pet stores. The best way to visually distinguish the two tegus is the fact that the Argentine Black and White Tegus have parallel white lines that are seen on the sides of the back. They also have two loreal scales (these scales can be found in between the eyes and nostrils). It is also reported that the Argentine Black and White Tegu has a better disposition than the Colombian Black and White Tegu.
