Argentine Tegu

Argentine Black & White Tegus live in a wide range of climates in Argentina; they can be found both in tropical areas and temperate areas that have cold winters.

During cold weather, these tegus will hibernate, generally for about six months from September to March. Though they are terrestrial, Argentine Tegus are excellent swimmers that can stay underwater for long periods of time.

DID YOU KNOW? Tegus are very intelligent and often seek attention from humans in captivity!
