When you get your first lizard, make sure that you house it in a tank with enough space for your pet to move around and grow. Some breeders will opt getting two tanks for their pets. A small tank while the lizard is still a hatchling and another one when the pet lizard has become an adult. There is nothing wrong with this but it's a waste of money. Instead of getting two housings, just get one that will be enough to house an adult lizard. This way, you don;t have to transfer your pet from one housing to another.
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.
Different reptiles also have different heating requirements. You have to research first on the heating requirements of your reptile pet to make sure that you will be able to maintain the temperature at the most ideal level. Lighting is also necessary as well as humidity control for specific pets like lizards.
Most of these lizards don't become very big, but there is a large divergence in their sizes. The smallest gecko at just under an inch is the Jaragua Sphaero. It is also the smallest reptile in world. The largest one ever found is extinct now. It was Delcourt's Giant Gecko of New Zealand, and it was just over 23 inches long.
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.
