 Just an update

Hi everyone, I have been away for about 7 months i was on my final military deployment. I just wanted to show some pictures of tyson he grew double the size since before I left. I bought him about a year ago, he’s about a year and a 1/2 at most. My wife took great care of him while I was gone and shes not really into reptiles so that meant alot. One thing I was worried about was that he was going to be aggressive because she didn’t really hold him, as soon as I got home I let him out and he let me pet him and pick him up as if I never left. Hope you all enjoy.

He is awesome. I got a question though. Could you tell me if mine is male or female? He or she is only 6-8 months of age.





His jowl’s looks to me to get big by each shed and really gets big when he eats. And by that I mean bigger then normal.

Hard to tell just by going off jowls because the tegu is still young. Have you a checked for spurs on the tegus underbelly? They look like small pimples on the underside on each side of the vent. That would probably be the best way to determine the sex.

If its a male it will have the spurs if it dosent have any spurs then it’s probably a female. Tegus also mature at different ages like people so if there are not any yet they can show up down the road.
