0.0.1 cb18 Red Tegu $350
As hatchlings, most red tegus display little, if any, red coloration. They develop red coloration as they mature. The red tegu typically reaches maturity in two to three years.  Wild specimens will eat a variety of plant and animal matter: fruits, vegetables, insects, rodents, birds, and fish. Raised in captivity they will often be more picky eaters, especially as juveniles, and may prefer a diet of mostly meat.
