Baby Deep Purple Tegu




Deep Purple Tegu is a color variation or morph of the Tegu lizard (Salvator sp.). It is distinguished by a deep purple or dark purplish-blue colour that differs from that observed in other Tegu variants.

Baby Deep Purple Tegu’s scales can be various hues of purple or blue, with minor variation in pattern and intensity. Color intensity varies between individuals and can be influenced by factors such as lighting and temperature.

The Deep Purple Tegu, like other Tegus, requires a large cage with adequate heating, lighting, and humidity levels. They are omnivorous and require a broad diet of insects, small mammals, fruits, vegetables, and other plant stuff to suit their nutritional requirements.

It’s crucial to remember that Tegus, even unique morphs like the Deep Purple Tegu, require special care and can grow to be quite large. They require knowledgeable reptile caretakers who can provide appropriate habitat, diet, and care. Furthermore, be aware of any local regulations or restrictions on tegu ownership, as they may be subject to laws in some locations. It is critical to purchase any reptile from trustworthy breeders who prioritize the animals’ health and welfare.
