Size - if you don't have the room for a large lizard like a bearded dragon, than an anole might be a better option. Anoles are small and hardy, and don't require large enclosures. The main concern is that they're so small, kids can easily hurt them, and if one gets away from a child outside of its tank, it's really hard to find. Your child will have to understand that the anole must stay in its tank (like a pet fish), or else it can get lost - and if you live in a colder climate this means death to your little pet.
When building a tank for your pet, understanding its native habitat should be a first priority. Different reptiles exist in different habitats in the wild. This means that you have to set up your tank as naturally as possible so as to give your pet a more comfortable and more normal environment.
Geckos are becoming more popular all the time as exotic pets. These reptiles are lizards, and there is no scarcity of them. There are nearly 1,500 species worldwide. The most popular for pets are the Crested Gecko and the Leopard Gecko, and others are becoming better known and more admired as well.
One lizard that makes a good pet is the bearded dragon lizard. This is medium sized lizard, which is timid and social. You can easily tame them and after that it will love to be handled. You can keep the bearded dragon lizard in a terrarium. The only problem is meeting its nutritional demands and environment needs as they are natives of Australia. However, if you are ready to invest some time and effort, you can overcome these problems. A bearded dragon lizard is omnivorous and loves to eats vegetables and small animals and insects. However, 80 percent of the lizard's diet is composed of insects, while 20 percent is of plants and vegetables. You can feed the lizard mice, crickets, wax worms, earthworms and even cockroaches. When it comes to plant, do not hesitate from feeding the lizard broccoli, zucchini, kale, collard beans, Swiss chards, parsley, alfalfa, clover, apples, grapes, papaya and melons.
Lizards can be found in all continents other than Antarctica. There are many different species of lizards and these reptiles come in different sizes too. If you are thinking of adopting a lizard as a pet, there are many things to take into consideration before making your decision. Not only do you have to take into consideration the size of lizard, also spend some time investigating the temperament. Not all types of lizards are ideal as pets.
