Pearl was donated to Animal Wonders because her owner said she was too aggressive. Since most Columbian Black and White Tegus are aggressive we knew just how to handle her. Many of these tegus end up in second or third homes because the owner didn't know the temperament of the animal they were purchasing. Once she feels secure being held she relaxes and even enjoys a few strokes on her back. She has doubled in size since she came here and has outgrown 3 enclosures. Soon she will have an entire room to herself! She enjoys basking in her heat light and is learning how to walk on a harness so she can enjoy the sun as well.
