    hey Joe and welcome to the site and hobby, which can both prove very addictive lol
    As I'm sure you'll notice, there is tons of info on almost everything you could imagine in relation to keeping reptiles, so if you're ever in need just do a search or if that fails, start a thread n ask away =)

    Lizzies n snakes are both awesome animals to keep, though you'll probably find snakes a tad easier in regards care, feeding etc..
    Though it's up to you!

    Good luck and once again welcome and hope you enjoy the site!

    Cheers,

    We have both lizards and snakes, caring for both is easy, i find the lizards have more personality.. AND WELCOME TO APS

    :shock: lol says who :p

    Snakes can be very entertaining, particularly once they grow to a good size n you introduce em to a group of ophidiophobes :lol:

    In all seriousness though they are a great joy to keep, though I guess you'll discover this in time.
    Lizards are fascinating too and have a lot of personality which i think is what you're referring to, lots of fun to keep and worth the extra effort as well :)

    hehe thanks all

    my mate has a few of these geckos, he said they are leaf tailed geckos but their tails are just a thicker lumpy long bit not really shaped like a leaf at all!

    he sent me a pic to post up to work out what they exactly are because i looked up on google and only found the leaf tail to be something different!

    does anyone know what they are? any clue at all?

    theyre only small roughly 4-5cms long so they might still be babies..
