Little Tess has had a fixation on our smaller reptiles. She is getting better around the beardie bins, as she is under surveillance! So, today we introduced her to “Who”. She was real calm with Who until Who decided to move, Tess shot straight to her feet and moved behind Who.





Who is our Black and White Tegu

I'm sure Tess would be saying " I heard lizard tastes like chicken Hmmm",we had a Jack Russell that used to try and take the head off my Corn snake,so we kept them apart.

Oh Wow!!!! Before Cleo died and we got Jordan my hubby and I were getting ready to put down a deposit on a B&W tegu. Where did you get yours from? Of course we haven't discussed it since getting the pup but the plans are still in the future. Beautiful lizard.

We picked it up at East Bay Vivarium when we lived in CA (Bay area). When you buy one, make sure its a baby and captive bred. They eat anything!

Thanks. There are two breeders that we've looked into. One that handles often straight from hatchling and another that come recommended by friends who have bought from them before. We've wondered how my 13 year old would do with one and now I'm wondering about the pup.

13 is a good age. Our tegu is very calm. Our oldest son has been holding it since it was a little feller. It just hangs out now with anyone and relaxes. Outside it is very skiddish. We used to have a two lizard limit (thats how many loose in the house at one time) but now with Tess, its no lizards untill she starts to ignore them like our other dobies.
