This is our Black and Gold Colombian Tegu Marley. Joe and I got Marley in November of '08 and he was just 6mos. old. We knew that Colombian Tegus were more aggressive than Argentinian Tegus but we were committed to putting in the time it would take to make sure Marley would be tame. He was just a little guy when we brought him home but he was a vicious little guy. We actually had to wear leather gloves to keep from being bit. Now that he's older and much, much bigger, we are able to hold him and pet him (without gloves). Many people don't like lizards, but they hold a special place in our hearts and we truly love this little guy!
