Hello all,
I was just wondering if someone could give me a list of herps (preferably snakes and lizards) that prefer things on the cooler side year round. I already got my Rhacodactylus geckos (MAN are they breeding like mad!), and I've heard that some Uroplatus won't tolerate much heat as well. If possible, I'd rather get scientific names due to the fact that its easier to do web searches with them than with common names, but either is okay.
Thanks alot,
Trevor

What do you call "cooler side"? Where do you live/what climate?

I keep both Hypsilurus boydii and Hypsilurus spinipes, they require little more than your average room temp (around 24C) , 1/2 hr a fortnight sunlight for UV and misting a couple of times a week.
Oops, I guess I forget to include that. I live in Nebraska, so during the summer its pretty warm (not inside though, my wife loves the AC.) So I'd say about 65-79. This whole list thing is just out of curiousity; I have to make sure that my crested and gargoyle gecko colonies stay below 80, so I was wondering what else I could out in the same room. Thanks again,
Trevor

For some additional lizard interest, look at the 'crocodile skink' (Tribolonotus gracilis) and the yellow-spotted night lizard (Lepidophyma flavimaculatum). I keep both at "room temperature". Both are pretty much nocturnals, though the crocs seem to be crespuscular.

I am SO jealous its not even funny.
Where in the world did you find TWO species of Hypsilurus ? Are they wild caught ? How long have you had them ?
Can, or do you already, breed them ?
There is a small but highly interested group of people into these animals (I happen to be one Emotion: smile
What country are you in (i guess that should have been my first question) I've been watching the market for about 2 years in the US and the only species I've come across was hypsilurus bellii.

Reptiles that like low 80's temps;
Acanthosaura mountain horn dragon(highly recommended, and available as captive bred if you really look around)
Corytophanes Forest chameleon(very cool, but almost always wild caught) Laemanctus -cone-head lizard-(very cool too but Ive never seen captive bred) These are 3 of my favorite "weird" looking lizards, and all thrive with highs in the low low 80's.
Do some research on them, even if you pick another type of critter to keep. And try to buy only captive bred, they're just the healthier better looking and much more moral choice

My tokays and white spot gex did well in a normal living room, until eaten by a snake.
