Information about the Argentine Black and White Tegu:
The Argentine Black and White Tegu – sometime simply called the Black and White Tegu – is the largest species of Tegu on earth. They are found in the tropical rainforests of eastern and central parts of South America. They are considered highly intelligent for reptiles. These lizards grow to roughly four feet in length at maturity. When born the hatchlings are bright green with black markings. As the reptile matures, the green fades usually within a few months. Tegus are very popular in the pet trade, and in some cases have even been trained to use litter boxes.
