Over the years we've own many different types of lizards and animals in general but my entire family agrees that Lemon is one of the best pets we ever had. We had him for almost my entire life and unfortunately lost him this year but oh he was loved.
From the time he was little he was the cutest thing. He'd sit on his rock and wave one arm back and forth at you. While it may have been a reflex it won him his place in our hearts. He was always a chill pet and never minded being handled, he loved sleeping on your shirt, especially if you took him outside. He was never overly active but he loved to climb on his rock or piece of drift wood.
They do need lots of sun and require several different types of food. Worms, lettuce, veggies, pinky mice if you can stomach it or even eggs! But they're not picky. Great with kids, and they don't require a lot of pizzaz with their habitat.
If you're looking for a lizard with a nice personality, that isn't skittish and is mostly low maintenance, then you can't go wrong with a bearded dragon!
