    Hey! I'm starting to look into getting a pet lizard but am having trouble finding information on the types of lizards I can keep in Queensland and reputable breeders/pet shops. I would prefer a gecko but I've read that they are a little more advanced for someone who has never owned a reptile before? Are there any websites/books/shops that have information specific to Queensland and beginner reptile owners?

    There are a few geckos that are good for starters, like smooth knobtails and thicktails.

    if you want an active animal, Don't get geckos.

    I'm not overly interested if it's not particularly active or if I can handle it, I just love they way they look
