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.
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.
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.
Baby bearded dragons require a lot o food to support their rapid growth rate. Between the first 3-6 weeks, feed your baby dragon about 2-3 times a day. Cricket, veggies, and greens can be used while watering can be done once or twice daily. It is rule of thumb that the food you will feed them must be about half the size as the distance between his eyes. This is to ensure that your dragon will not suffer from terminal indigestion.
If you are looking for a low maintenance pet, then the blue belly lizard is perfect for you. This lizard is also known as western fence lizard and can provide you with hours of entertainment. The lizard needs a temperature of around 80 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and around 75 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit during the night. You can easily feed this lizard ants, wax worms, bugs, spiders and crickets.
