We here at Tegu Terra are pleased to announce a new breed of Tegu: the Majestic Argentine. It was featured on page 44 of the April 2010 issue of Reptiles Magazine, under the Breeder’s Choice section. We have always striven to produce, through meticulous selective breeding, the best Tegus available on the market, with careful attention given to every aspect of these incredible animals, from their health and physical vitality to the vibrancy of their coloration- and it is our efforts in this last instance which have brought the Argentine Majestic to the Tegu enthusiast community. Please visit our ‘Majestic Argentine Tegus’ page and see for yourself the beauty and majesty for which this Tegu is so aptly named. Check back soon; we will update our photos as these lovely creatures continue to grow and develop into their full maturity.
My fascination with reptiles began over 35 years ago. Of all the reptiles I had owned, none were like the first Argentine Tegu I purchased! The intelligence and companionship this animal displayed was absolutely amazing! My continued quest for more knowledge of these animals led me to the fortunate meeting with Bert Langerwerf in 2006. I spent time with Bert at his Alabama farm and his expertise taught me everything there was to know about Tegus. He was the largest breeder of Argentine Tegus in the world! I now raise these animals myself and have over one hundred of these fascinating creatures. Tegus you purchase for adoption from Tegu Terra are raised here at our facility.
So, it is in closing, I want to say thank you to my friend, Bert Langerwerf, who passed away in 2008 . I am sure that Bert would be proud that Tegu Terra is continuing to rehome and raise his stock.
