I've actually though about getting a Tegu myself. Here is what I've learned so far. Argentine seem to be the best. Everyone I spoke to said Colombian are aggressive and that paraguayan Tegu can't even be compared to Argentine when is comes to temperament. Also, I would be careful where you buy it. Some sellers might say there selling a Argentine when it's a Paraguyan. I believe both look similar when they are young. I think Ron St. Pierre would be a good person to speak to regarding Tegu?
