Argentine Tegu Morph & Hybrid List

There are over 400 species of tegu lizards out there, but only a few are kept in captivity: the Argentine black and white tegu (salvator merianae), the Red tegu (Salvator rufescens), and the Colombian golden tegu (salvator teguixin).

Despite their names, none of these species are limited to one color, and breeders have fun experimenting with genetic combinations in order to create rare, unique morphs.

Below, a list of all the most unique and amazing tegu morphs and hybrids in the trade.
