    Now that I've got myself a Thick-Tailed gecko, I've been thinking about purchasing another reptile (Lizards only) and wanted to know from you guys what's another great lizard to possibly buy?

    But I need it to suit my needs

    (1). Something that can live it's whole life in an 3 or 4ft tank or an Exo Terra type enclosure

    (2). Something that's easy to feed

    (3). Something that's not aggressive

    (4). Something that's either a desert or forest species

    Pogona Henrylawsoni maybe? They'd be very different to your gecko. The only issue might be enclosure size though

    I've had Blueys & Cunninghams before and I found them a bit boring, I want something that's fairly active all the time.

    Would a 3ft tank be two small for a Pygmy Bearded Dragon?

    3' would be ok for a pygmy, I have my pairs in 4' enclosures divided in half until mating season

    Central netteds and painted dragons are both active and visually appealing species which would be suitable species for a 3x18x18 enclosure.

    Beardies , BTS , and the smaller social skinks (that you can keep in groups to enjoy their interactions).

    Some great suggestions guys! Geez when I think about it I'd love a Woma! But I think something along the lines of a dragon would be what I'm after...I've been looking at images of Central Breded Dragons and think there extremely cute, and I'm starting to think I would like to get one of them.

    They seem to fit most even all of my needs, with housing, feeding, temperament (etc)
    So I'm going to start my long journey of plenty of research, so I will be taking care of he/she properly.

    Once again thanks guys! Some pretty awesome reps there are to consider keeping out there.
