Lizards

So I think I might get a lizard. I've been wanting a Gecko, but then I saw this Iguana and really liked it, but they just get to big. So I'm trying to find a different lizard thats smaller. Do you have any lizards to reccomend?

Leopard Gecko

A low maintenance, fun lizard thats affordable and easy to keep once its setup.

Iguanas and most other lizards need almost constant attention or they will become viscious. not recomended for a beginner...i have seen so many abandoned

oh and if you can afford to feed it properly, bearded dragons make great pets. but they require a balanced diet of veggies and mealworms, crickets and whatnot

Iguana's are hard to keep. You are better off starting small in my opinion.

Man, I wanted a bearded dragon soooo bad, until I found out they have to be in atleast a 60 gallon tank I need something that will fit in a 10 gallon tank, or a 20 gallon if I can get one of those. Am I only stuck with a gecko? I want a gecko, but I'm just curious about other lizards.

And can I only feed geckos waxworms? Or do they havvve to have crickets? I just dont like crickets And can geckos stay in 10 gallon tanks forever?

There are more small lizards about other than geckos... I think Skinks are fairly small. Your best bet is to go to a place that sells exotic pets and have a look at what they have and ask the retailer about keeping them.

Anoles do well in ten gallon tanks.
