Im from Toronto Canada have never had a reptile of any kind as a pet (only dogs) and thought Id look into something new and interesting. Im hoping to get either a Corn Snake or Uromastyx Geyri as my 1st reptile as Im not interested in Geckos, Boas or Pythons as a pet (although I do appreciate them zoologically for the neat creatures they are). Not sure which one I prefer though between the Corn Snake and the Uromastyx .
Have you looked into bearded dragons? They are extremely personable and very much like a cat with scales. They cuddle and seem to enjoy humans as much as we enjoy them. Lots of colors and other morphs too.
@mama-susan yes I have. Beardies were one of the first I considered but I found I preferred the Uromastyx to the beardie by far. A beardie I saw at an expo 2 or 3 years ago seemed to take a huge interest in me but I had already decided I didnt want one. I find beardies interesting and like them a lot but the Uromastyx gives me an advantage when it comes to feeding as its easier for me to have something that has a diet thats more focused on greens than bugs instead of the other way around. Only thing I dont like about the Uromastyx is the heat it needs as I love cold environments. But the kinda temps Im happiest in arent good for any cold-blooded creature. I know I want an uro but dont know where in the house Id put it as its presence would possibly drive my dog who has free reign of the house and a high prey drive nuts. Plus the temperature I prefer to keep my room at is too cold for a reptile. When I figure out where to safely and enjoyably put the enclosure Ill look into getting an Uro. Just dunno if Ill go U. Geyri or U. Ornata and if Ill go or . I do like beardies a lot though.
