All i can answer is #1 - the males will get almost a foot larger than the females normally.

Baby tegus can eat crickets,pinkies, meal worms , super worms,roaches just make sure the food is the adequate size for your tegu. The prey food shouldn’t be bigger than the width of your tegus head. You can offer them ground turkey raw, fruits veggies cooked eggs. My guy prefers boiled. They are very versatile when it comes to feeding alot of it will be expiramenting and seeing what they like, ex my guy won’t touch meal worms but any thing else he eats up. Good luck with your new buddy.

I forgot to mention that as babies and juveniles they tend to be strictly carnivore as they get older their diet will change and they will be open to more food groups. And use calcium powder on meals without bones to support your tegus growth rate
