Baby Chacoan White Headed Tegu




Chacoan White Headed Tegu for sale (Tupinambis merianae) is a big lizard native to South America’s Gran Chaco region, which encompasses portions of Paraguay, Bolivia, Argentina, and Brazil. The Chacoan Tegu is another name for the Argentine Black and White Tegu.

White-Headed Chacoan Tegus are named after their unusual white or cream-colored heads, which contrast with their mostly black or dark-colored bodies. As adults, they can grow to be 3 to 4 feet long and have a strong frame. They are well-known for their intelligence and capacity to build attachments with their owners.

Chacoan White Headed Tegus require large enclosures with adequate warmth and lighting for proper care. They are omnivorous, eating a wide range of insects, small mammals, fruits, vegetables, and other plant stuff. Because they have unique temperature and humidity needs, it is critical to offer an appropriate habitat to maintain their well-being.

Chacoan White Headed Tegus are more difficult to care for than smaller reptiles and require expert reptile keepers who are prepared to devote time, effort, and resources to suit their demands. Furthermore, be aware of any local regulations or restrictions on tegu ownership, as they may be subject to laws in some locations.
