Anyone ever own a pet lizard/reptile?

Growing up I owned a good amount of reptiles (turtles, iguanas, anoles etc) but that was when I was a kid.

I'm now approaching 30 and looking to get a new pet(s). I've considered getting a dog or cat but thats sorta cliche and kinda wanna get a cool lizard.

I'm thinking either a leopard gecko or a bearded dragon. I've read up on both of them and they seem like they would be pretty easy to take care of. The downside to a bearded dragon is that they get huge and eat a TON. But the upside is that they are friendly/docile creatures that like human interaction.

Leopard Geckos dont eat as much and are also docile/friendly but they are nocturnal and usually only come out at night(spend most of their days hiding/sleeping)

Has anyone here owned a gecko or bearded dragon? Any advice would be great! THanks

Yep. Had a green anole when I was about 12-14
Have had several corn snakes 4-5 of them in my teens early 20's
And I have a Russian Tortoise now. (For my daughter)
They are quiet, most are clean and its fascinating watching them eat.

I really, really can't understand why anyone would want any kind of reptile as a pet. The things I want out of a pet a reptile can't offer me.

I agree with this. You can have a pet snake for years, and there'll never be a point where the only reason it won't eat you is because you won't fit in its mouth.

I own 2 Beardies. Kiss my ass Phobia...

They're surprisingly fun pets. I'd recommend a Bearded Dragon over a gecko any day of the week. Geckos are skittish and not as docile as most people claim. Beardies are probably the most docile lizard you can get. I let mine run around the house quite often. They even interact with my cats. They're very easy to handle, and it's a piece of cake to take care of them. I feed mine a mix of veggies and fruit, and crickets and mealworms. Sometimes in the summer, I'll even dig up some earthworms or catch some June bugs. They go nuts over June bugs.

Here's my 2:



Also, I would throw in the blue tongue skink as a good choice. Especially if you're wanting something cheaper and don't have much experience. They're very docile as well, and you can handle them as much as a Beardie. They make really good pets, but aren't talked about much.

Also note that if you get into Bearded Dragons, there's lots of different colors and varieties. From yellows to bright reds. They're much more expensive than the normal ones you find at local shops. But if you get one and breed it, you can sell the babies for really good money.

Some of the larger snakes really like to hug people. That's kind of nice.

We have 2 leopard geckos. We have also had a number of water dragons. Don't be worried about the leopard gecko being nocturnal. They are up and around during the day a lot also. You can hold them and let them run around a bit if you keep an eye on them and keep them warm.

So do you house train them or what?
Seems like it could get nasty.
