    I was thinking about getting a shingleback, but recently the central netted dragons and angle headed dragons have caught my eye. I'm not sure what to get, so i'm asking what is easier to care for?

    I would tend to go for what u personally prefer not whats easier to care for. Both are quite easy as long as u put a bit of time in.

    Shingleback. They're so cute, easy to handle and have a very nice, calm personality.
    would probably have to be one of if not my favourite lizard after getting these guys

    Hey mate i was interested in going for central netted but changed my mind when i saw my ackie, now they're easy. Angle Heads aren't for a novice beginner they're pretty temperamental and difficult to maintain in terms of temps. So if u wish to keep Angle Heads u need to do ALOT of research and i mean ALOT to be certain if u can keep them. Don't be afraid to ask, this is what the forum is for. Im happy to answer some q's if u wish but there are also others who can help.

    shingle backs are fairly easy,central netted are not much of a problem but angle heads need high humidity and low heat,we have skinks ,netted and boyds (which are similar to angle heads)

    I think alot of people have scared alot of people off boyds and angle heads. To be honest there probably suited to most home temperatures more than most reps. If u can find the time to mist them once or twice a day and make sure there's running water in front of them twice a day they will drink and id be surprised if they don't do well. Just make sure your temps are right. There's alot of reps that need more care.
