    They are huge, I have a big room so they don't look that big. They are 5ft Long X 3ft Wide X 18in high. The book case next to it is 3ft wide.

    That thing looks tiny. She is adult?....

    The reds I've seen Bennet have are huge compared to that thing.

    that is a she. blues are the smallest of all tegus, males get a good size but females tend to be smaller. that one does have a little more growing to do though

    Nope, she's done. She's a 2yr old adult female. Doesn't look it from the pic but she's 3ft 2 inches. They typically get 3ft even, and males get 3 1/2ft. here is a link to TONS of new pics:

    Beautiful lizard John. So that is a Blue Tegu?? It looks much like an off-color B&W. Is it a race or ssp of T. merianae, as the loreal scales on her face suggest ?? or is it a totally different species. Regardless, it is a nice looking lizard.

    I love her to death!!! BTW I have tons of new pics:

    http://photobucket.com/albums/v306/JLExotics/

    They are now fully set up in their new 54" visions! She is a grayish/blue more gray though! Females aren't near as pretty as males but they can be much more blue. I'm currently looking for 0.1 more albino and 1.1 blues so hopefully I'll be adding to the collection soon! To some up their species please check out this page:

    www.jlexotics.thetegu.com - then go to captive husbandry and scroll down. They are currently NOT classified. Lots of information on blues there - Infact more then you will find anywhere else! I have purchased www.jlexotics.com which will be going up real soon :(!

    My albinos came from Bill at ASF reptiles. I stopped by Bennetts (www.beardiedragon.com) and he's got an albino and 2 het females. That week I called Bill and drove down to maimi again to pick them up personally! I'm currently looking for another female albino! I'd highly recommend them. My male is the smaller one in all of the pictures. He was the smallest of the bunch of males (probably got the least amount of food as well) but he was the nicest looking. Now that's he's been set up in a giant enclosure with lots of food he's starting to fill out like the female. Males do grow faster (I believe) so he should catch and surpass his girl in the not to distant future! I love them~! Now if the snows prove out I'll snag some of those as well...and may also have to get some platinums!

    Tegus take preference over everything...so I will follow through with my plans. Lizard - wise I'm only planning on working with blue tegus (all morphs and normals), that is unless I can find a pair of caiman lizards!!!
