 Someone who knows what they’re talking about can you help me out?

My friends and I are going to the Hamburg reptile show in Feb. I was just wondering what’s the price range for young red or b&w tegu there. Also what to look for when getting one and what’s the closest I can get to detrmening if its a male?

They usually start at about $100 for b/w’s and $150 and up for reds, as far as sexing you want to look at the base of he tail,on tegus 18" and up you would be looking for 2 bumps near the tails base, they look like. 2 pimples,1 on each side, those are males, although some don’t show up til around 24-30", head size/shape is hard to distinguish as some females can fool you, ask the dealer if he has had them probed, sometimes its like shooting fish in a barrel, good luck
