Perhaps the most interesting of these lizards is Kuhl's Flying Gecko that is found in Asia. It is built to glide through the air and appear as though it is flying. It is able to do this because it has flaps on both sides of the body, as well as webbed feet and broad, flat tail. It will jump out of trees and glide to the ground.
If you want to buy a reptile tank for your pet, you can choose among many varieties available from pet stores and online shops. These tanks are also commonly referred to as vivariums, and are typically available in different sizes. There are smaller tanks ideal for smaller reptiles such as lizards, geckos, or turtles, while bigger tanks are perfect for bigger breeds such as snakes or iguanas.
They are found in variety of places in the wild. You will find lizards in deserts, rainforests and even temperate zones. They are usually active during the day when the temperature is moderately high. However, when the temperature soars, most lizards hide away in their burrows or under rocks. During winter, lizards hibernate and can be seen only on warmer winter days when they come out to feed. So when keeping a lizard as a pet, you would have to maintain a moderately high temperature in the tank, especially in winters.
If you have kids, then think about getting a leopard gecko, water dragon or bearded dragon as not all lizards are ideal pets for children. Make sure you teach your kids how to take care of the lizard and supervise them in the beginning to ensure they handle them correctly.
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.
