    Stunningly Red Tegu

    I bought a Red Chacoan Tegu, and she is absolutely stunning, her red is extremely vibrant, and her white is equally so. I can stare at her patterns all day. I gave 4 out of 5 stars because she's a bit bigger than expected so i had to give her a separate enclosure, separated from my smaller male.

    Beautiful healthy baby

    Purchased a female red chacoan tegu. She was packed perfectly and arrived on time. She is eating very well and settling in nicely!! They answered my questions before my purchase. the only reason i rated 4 stars instead of 5 is because i was told the tegus were 2-3 months old, and this tegu is the size of a hatchling. other than that she's great and i cant wait to grow her out!

    beautiful and healthy

    She came in great condition. Had to wait a few days for them to ship due to weather but that is perfectly fine. I’m glad I can trust Snakes at Sunset to put the animal’s safety first

    Awesome Company/ Awesome Reptiles

    I had researched Tegus months before purchasing one. Snakes at Sunset had great reviews and had no problem answering all my many questions. They were very knowledgeable and very nice helping me pick the right Tegu for me. She arrived safe and sound and what a Beautiful specimen she was. I would diffently purchase from them again and would refer any if my friends to deal with them when it comes to buying a Beautiful healthy reptile. Thanks Snakes at Sunset for making my 1st Tegu experience a good one. Her name is Scarlett and she is Amazing!!
