Well, since I can't seem to sell the 4' x 4' x 2' cage I have here, I might as well put something in it. I'm thinking about tipping it over on its backside to create a 4' L x 4' W x 2' tall space for some type of lizard. I can easily change out the plexiglas doors for a screen lid. Or, I can leave it at its 4' H x 2' D x 4' W state with the plexiglas. It also has 3 branches installed in it for climbing.
I'm contemplating a bearded dragon or ackie, or can anyone else suggest something steps above leopard geckos? Emotion: smile I'm doing great with my leos-but somehow I doubt they would appreciate that much space. I'm going to keep my eyes out for adoptions first, buying anything online is going to be my last choice right now.

Why don't you consider either a Sudan Plated Lizard http://www.centralpets.com/pages/xFileDisplay.php?an=2701&in=2401

Or a Yellow-throated Plated Lizard

I have had a couple for years, and are a great choice for those who want something different than Beardies, but with similar care.

All of those in the Gerrhosaurus spp. are considered highly intelligent, and all those that I have ever dealt with seem to posses a personality and very calm demeanor.
They are fairly easy to come by, and can be purchased fairly inexpensively. Just a thought on something different.

I'll look up some care sheets and get more information on them first-thanks for the suggestions!
BTW your email isn't working.

Personally, I am partial to Blue-Tongued Skinks!!
They get to about a good 12" and are fun to play with as well. Mine have always been rather friendly.

I'll look into those, too. Emotion: smile As I said, adoptions will be priority. Not in a big hurry to rush into owning lizards other than leopard geckos right now. )

For an ackie, see if you can get the enclosure to hold a foot or two of dirt. Also, use as little ventilation as possible (i.e., keep the plexi doors) since the high basking temperatures combined with screen tops quickly dries out the cage and the lizards in it.
For other lizards, I do not have as much experience, but have heard some people are having a lot of success keeping the Uromastix lizards in the same fashion as monitors (but just feeding them greens instead of mice and insects). A Mali, Moroccan or ornate Uromastic might be what you are looking for.
Good luck,
Luke
