Ok so technically there are three species of Tupinambis (tegus) in the American reptile trade. T. Teguixin (Columbians), T. Rufescens (red tegu), T. Marianae (Argentine black and white, extreme giant, Chacoan giant, blue...).

There are plenty of people who love their columbians. Just like there are plenty of people that love their Varanids (monitor lizards). What are you looking to get out of your captives? What do you consider success? Are Columbians aggressive or are they being defensive? Do your research and know what your getting into.

If you want something that curls up to you and loves you get a dog.

Good luck,

Chris
