    Tegu lizard.

    Invasive species of lizard from Africa has moved into Florida and Georgia. About 4 feet long, looks like a monitor lizard, and is said to be a voracious eater of "anything it wants". Sentiment is "kill 'em if you see 'em", as they are destructive of our native animals.

    I wonder what it tastes like (chicken, ya think?), and if it would make a nice pair of shoes.

    The Argentine black and white tegu (Salvator merianae) is a large lizard that grows up to 4 feet long. It is black and white with banding along its tail. Hatchlings have green on their heads which fades after a few months.Two other tegu species have been found in South Florida and have the potential to become invasive. The gold tegu (Tupinambis teguixin) grows to 2–3 feet long and has black and gold stripes down its body. Red tegus (Salvat…

    Invasive tegu lizards ‘should be shot on sight’ if seen in Georgia, wildlife group says.....


    Wildlife officials in Georgia recently issued a warning about Argentine black and white tegus, 4-foot-long omnivorous reptiles that have been spotted in at least two counties.

    But earlier this week a conservation group minced no words on how urgent the need is to eradicate the predator from the state.

    “Tegus seen in Georgia can and should be shot on sight,” the Orianne Society wrote in a Facebook post.


    “These large lizards are voracious predators that have been found consuming a variety of natural wildlife in the longer-established Florida populations,” the group wrote Monday. “A fondness for eggs makes their current proximity to Gopher Tortoise and Eastern Indigo Snake populations even more concerning.”

    People can keep them as Pets. They aren't suppose to release them into the wild.


    They do like to eat snake eggs and Insects. I don't think many people are against that.
