    I've been doing my research for the past 5 or 6 months on these two lizards and I need to make a decision. I am aware of all the requirements for both and such I'm just stuck on which one to get. I know that the Argentines are calmer but I find the Columbian Tegu much prettier. Any ways, I can't decide, Any advice/opinions?

    I'm not up on the current captive breeding practices on these.
    Are they both being captive bred? If not I would strongly lean towards the one that is.

    I would have to say with lizards of this type and size, I would personally go with the argentine. Much more docile and are considered one on the best monitor/ tegus for taming.

    I'm not quite sure if Tegu's make display animals, but if you just want a display, go with the prettier one. If you want to be involved in you Tegu a lot, go with the more docile one.
