so many to choose from!!

Posted by Lizardsarelikewow at 8/13/2009 11:50:57 AM

so i went to the pet store to see what they recommended as a first reptile i told him i wasnt a hundred pecent sure what i wanted either a snake or lizard and the numerous amounts of reptiles he showed me were overwelming. i am really struggling on what to choose i never thought getting a reptile would involves these hard choices. i spose thats the wonder of all the different types :)

You're absolutely right.  But you're wise to take your time and put a lot of thought and research into it.

but yeah, good idea to research before you buy and not leave it to impulse!

Definatly a good list.
The easyest and cheapest out of all of them would be the crested gecko.
I'd say go to your local reptile show. You'll get the animals for half of what there selling it at the store. Plus you'll get a happy healthy always well tooken care of animal. You'll have a much larger selection of animals at a reptile show. There might be something you've never seen that you will just fall in love with.
