Reptilian Invaders in the Everglades: Argentine Tegu

This invasive reptile is the Argentine Black and White Tegu. It was captured in the Everglades in March of this year, and was released back to the same location the next day carrying a transmitter for telemetry (to allow it to be tracked). By tracking its movements we can better understand their range and work to lessen their impact on the Everglades ecosystem.
