I’m not interested in pythons or boas snake wise and aside from a select few geckos I am not interested in them either (as in a pet perspective although I like learning about everything from a zoological bio perspective. My fav subject is biology so I’m interested in learning more about all sorts of different liffeforms). Cannot have venomous/poisonous anything even if its mild and harmless to humans thanks to local current law here in Toronto Canada. So snake wise Colubrids are my best bet.
I wanted a Tarantula first but can’t because of the aformentioned law. So my interest shifted to Corn snakes since their adorable beginner snakes with many morph options and basic husbandry. But I soon realized that getting rodents could prove an issue on a regular basis for now so my focus shifted to Uromastyx. Their good looking lil bearded dragon cousins from N. Africa and the middle east (same lizard fam as them aka Agamidae) quite personable/friendly and quite easy to feed for the most part (they primarily eat leafy greens, veggies, seeds and such–I can run to the 24 hr grocery store if I find myself short on food for it for the most part + its prob cheaper too)
Their husbandry is fairly simple as well…quite like beardies but a bit higher heat…so hi heat, low humidity and hi UV.
Only species of pet I’ve ever had has been dogs…need something different and new to enjoy.
