    Hello all, nice to meet you all. My names Haydn, i have recently got a licence to keep reptiles. Theres a few lizards etc i'd like to own but some need more experience to own. So been going trough reptiles under my licence level a few i'd like are the easten water dragon, leopard gecko( illigal to own in aus), smooth knob tailed geckos, ackies or ridge tailed moniters. I like all types of lizards, snakes to but my mother hates snakes. In the future when i have experience and knowledge under my belt i'd like to own a frilled lizard.

    Hey mate, new to the herp game? If so you're in the right place for advice and help..
    If you are going to start out in the four legged kind my i suggest a bearded dragon or BT Skink (lizard) they are pretty easy and adapte easy to humans.. help you learn the basics in heating diet cage set up /design etc.. after a yr or two and the reptile bug has bitten hard (and it will) them maybe into monitors and or snakes from there the herp world is all yours ..

    But make sure you research learn research some more ask questions and heed advice from people whom know from many years of experience..

    Good luck buddy

    And oh Welcome
