Hey guys, I’ve been looking into making an arid bioactive setup, and I want to know people’s thoughts on potential lizard inhabitants, I want to avoid bearded dragons and leopard geckos, but honestly I can’t think of any other ones that are easily accessible and CB. If anyone has thoughts on what could do well in a desert set up, please share.
Collared Lizards can be great arid inhabitants.
Maybe a uromastyx. I really enjoy the ones my friend has they are super awesome
I think Uromastyx are super cool. They aren’t always available captive bred, but you can occasionally find them.
If you’re ok w it being a smaller enclosure and doing a little searching. A small group of Viper Gecko would be sick
I just looked at viper geckos and they are awesome! Do you have any or have advice on keeping them?
Sometimes collared lizards can be wild-caught because they are so abundant here in the west. Uromastyx could be a great candidate depending on your enclosure size.
EDIT: I also looked-up viper geckos and now I want them very badly I need to decide to sleep on it so I don’t get too excited about them… Hopefully I wake up with some reason not to get them so I don’t buy like, 10 of them and put them in my 50 gallon desert bioactive…
I don’t think I have the money for them but if I sell my house…
How many can you put in a 50G Exo Terra?
Shield-Tail Agamas? I have a soft-spot for them!
edit: knob-tailed geckos?
