Subadult 1.1 Pair of Crocodile Tegus (Crocodilurus amazonicus)

Product details

This is an amazing 1.1 Subadult pair of Crocodile tegus that we are making available. This is an incredibly rare species of lizard that is rarely offered for sale in the US. The smaller animal in the pictures is the female and the larger is the male. Crocodile Tegus are a semiaquatic species of lizard that is kept very similarly to Shinisaurus, although croc tegus prefer temps that are a bit warmer than Shinisaurus. We keep our basking spots around 90-95*F and the ambient temperature of the enclosure gets down to 80*F. These are skittish when being handled and they can drop their tail, so care should be taken when handling them. But, we believe that if they are consistently worked with and built trust with, they could become very easy to work with. This is a great opportunity for someone to establish their own breeding pair of Croc tegus for future breeding, display or just as an incredibly unique pet pair. This pair is probably 1 year off from being able to breed.

We ship all months of the year. We have been shipping and selling for over 20 years and have an amazing track record getting our customers their animals in a timely and SAFE manner. We will not ship until we confirm the order with you and confirm that you will have someone home to receive your new pet.

Check Out These Featured NERD Collections :   Merch - Ball Pythons - Lizards and Monitors too


From Hoodies, Lanyards, Wristbands, Posters, Hats and T-Shirts, we have an amazing selection of great NERD merch.

Ball Pythons

Ball Pythons are one of most docile species of snakes and that makes them great for beginners. Captive bred, well started ball pythons make an excellent first snake for the beginning herpetoculturist. While ball pythons are easy to take care of, the keeper must have a general knowledge of snake husbandry.

  • Enclosures can be as simple or elaborate as one is capable of caring for.
  • Substrates that work well include newspaper or Cypress shavings; never use cedar, as this is deadly to reptiles!
  • Ball pythons need a basking spot of 88-92 °F and an ambient (background) temperature of 78-80 °F.

Lizards and monitors

NERD has a large selection of captive bred, hand-raised lizards and monitors.

The Lizard and Monitor collection includes Savannah Monitors, Tegus, Skinks, Water Monitors and Geckos. Don't skip checking out these beautiful animals, especially the Black Dragons who are 5th generation CBB and as tame as puppies!
