:thinking about getting an argentine. I just got rid of my columbia tegu last night. Im not looking to spend 300 dollars if you know what i mean. but i do want a quality tegu. anything in particular i should look for when purchasing. any advice would be aprresiated. -Nick_

I would purchase from a reputable dealer instead of going some place to look at them first. Unless you know how to tell a Columbian from Argentinian you might end up with either one. I sudjest http://www.agamainternational.com/ mine was only $90 from there, I think they have some in stock, and the customer service was top notch. If you look at my comparison pic I posted you can see the one I got from him has a lot of white and it looks like a good trait to me, she's white-headed from the July 2002 stock. If you do look for stuff in particular when you purchase; like I said I'd look for the most white, a fat tail, go to agama international to see comparison with Columbian and Argentinian, and alertness is a good sign (maybe even a little nervousness in a baby).
