:I'm of two minds about the pet store purchase. My first instinct is to say to stay away from basically any type of pet store, whether they say they specialize in captive born animals or not. The fact that his front toes are missing is definitely an indicator of improper care, whether coming from the breeder or the pet store itself. This would definitley put me off. I work at a large chain pet store in the reptile department, and take it from an inside person, if you want quality reptiles, don't get them from a pet store. I would, and am currently waiting on some St. Pierre tegus.
i wouldn't say to never buy a new companion from a pet store, i feel that you should just do your homework on the store. I bought mine from the famous Chuck Hurt(if you are unfamiliar with the name he is the first one to breed red tegus in captivity) and besides the juvies fiestiness, i am totally happy with my purchase
