But there are a few things one must remember when owning or planning to own a pet lizard. Unlike cats or dogs, these animals are usually unfriendly. Most lizards don't like being handled and are aloof, if not apprehensive, towards humans. So proper care and precaution must be observed when owning and handling one.
When installing or choosing tanks for your reptiles, there are a few things you need to consider. Tanks may be made from either acrylic or glass. Whether you're building or buying a terrarium for your pet, you need to make sure it is durable enough. Also, you have to keep it tightly sealed, to keep the reptiles from crawling out of their pens.
So your child has come to you wanting to get a lizard for a pet, but you don't know anything about them. Hopefully I can get some lizard facts straight for you. Keep in mind two things when deciding which lizard is best for your family:
The bearded dragon lizard, a native of Australia, is one of the most popular choices when choosing a reptile as a house pet. Mainly due to its docile and friendly disposition, this sociable reptile has been gracing pet stores and houses at an increasing rate.
You would think that geckos have suction cups on their feet because they can walk up walls and the sides of glass aquarium tanks. But there are no suction cups. Instead, they have microscopic hairs on the pads of their feet that can fit into the smallest openings, even those a human can't see. Their toes bend the opposite direction of a human's finger. The exception to the pads is the Leopard Gecko, which has claws instead. This makes it easier for it to climb the sides of trees.
