:what is the average size of a full grown b/w tegu. and what is the diff between the columbian and the argentine.

They can get very large. If you hibernate them they grow more slowly...if not...they grow to full size within 18 months. Some tegus can reach 4 1/2 - 5 feet.

:and dot he red and blue tegus get any bigger than the black and whaites. what ones will have the best temperment? which will i be able to handle more?

Argentine b & w are personable as are reds....I have heard dwarfs can be challenging, and I know of quite a few nasty columbians. On Agama's site they have comparative photos for columbian and arg tegus if your interested.
