    Truth be told, I think that a way to get rid of an invasive species of animal is to not get rid of mostly males as the males still loose have a more chance to be able to mate with more females. In my perspective, catching females in the breeding season will make less females able to produce out in the wild where they don't naturally belong. I personally think it's a good way to get rid of them, but it's my opinion. Don't judge my opinion, I just want to say it.

    Tegu make great pets. It's just about KNOWING your animals. You have to be committed to an animal if you get one. I know how big my female ball python will get, and I accept the challenge. Getting a tegu or a berm and releasing it because it got too big is like getting a fuzzy puppy and releasing it because it turned into a Saint Bernard.

    I've always understood the threat that many invasive species can pose to local ecosystems, but at the same time a part of me can't help but wonder in certain instances what would happen if we sat back and let nature do its thing, in certain instances. In the case of the tegu, for instance, a good chunk of Florida is already pretty artificial to begin with, with entire ecosystems having been demolished or "rewritten", so to speak, and the idea that when humanity eventually does go extinct (as every living thing eventually does) that we'll leave most of Earth's ecosystems completely unchanged is ridiculous. Invasive species have been a thing since long before humans, with the cycle of "new species introduced, old ecosystem changes or collapses, new ecosystem forms from the survivors" being a cycle found since the first multicellular organisms evolved.

    I'm not saying we *shouldn't* make an effort to prevent the potential damage that invasive species can cause. I'm just saying it'd be interesting to see what the tegus would do a few generations from now, in the hypothetical scenario where we let them be, and how that would affect everything else.

    Imagine a future, several thousand years from now, of a Floridian wilderness, where descendants of tegus have gotten larger, taking steps towards potentially becoming a megafaunal predator to rival the local alligators.
