Argentine Tegu


Tegus can reach five feet in length and weigh 8 to 15 pounds. They can live 12-20 years in captivity and are avid diggers and climbers, which is probably how the Fontana tegu escaped its enclosure. 

The lizard is waiting at the Riverside County Department of Animal Services, in hopes that its owner will be found. Anyone who knows who the owner is can call the Fontana Police Department Animal Services, 909-350-7620 or the Riverside County Department of Animal Services, 951-358-7387.
