In Reply to: Argentine red tegu Vs. Northern Paraguay red tegu...... posted by fhayden1 on April 27, 2003 at 19:26:54:


Hi there Frank! My 2 paraguayans are more brownish-red. There are some paraguayans that are near impossible to tell the difference from argentines. Please do not let these pics deter you from looking at paraguayans too. The coloration typcially can be seen in babies so you can get a nice colored one.
I got the paraguayans becasue of the price that was offered for them. He just wanted tohave a good home. They are like puppies and come when you call them. They were used for shows at schools and day care centers.

Take care!

Greg


:Well, that taught me something. I don't own any tegu but I'm planning too. I'd like to own a pair of Chacoan and Red Tegu. I didn't know there is such an evident difference in the Argentine and Paraguayan red tegu. Thanks for the comparison pic.

::Hi there! Here they are, well 2 of the 4 I have. You should be able to get an idea though. The paraguayan and argentines both have awesome personalities. The argentines though have a more definite red coloration, versus a brownish-red of the paraguayan.

:::does anyone have pics of both so i can compare. thanks
