Heya everyone!


I am currently looking into buying a tegu. I would prefer one that has a gentler sense. I have heard that blue tegus and black and white seem to be the best choices for one like me? I am a herp novice, owning two sulcuta tortoises and about a year ago I owned a bearded dragon(died from unknown cause, took to vet about 4 times and he took the dragon for a week for research and still came up blank on why she would not eat, had to force feed for about two weeks. Was horrible). I also have some experience with leopard geckos. I was hoping to get a blue tegu because I read that they were the most docile of all. My main questions are, what kind of qualities do tegus have? Which are the most docile and are temperate of me messing up occasionally? How many square feet will an adult need?


Thanks so much for all the help.

Sincerely,
Levi
