Acquired: Pet store
Posted Apr 07, 2014
You know, I can say that I was fairly disappointed with this reptile. That is not to say it was a bad lizard, it was just a bad one for me. I couldn’t tell you for sure what I didn’t like about them. I suppose I found them to be a rather lazy lizard, but that doesn’t often bother me. WIth this species, I just felt like they really lacked any appealing aspects to suit my fancies. Would I recommend them as something you get into, possibly. They aren’t hard to care for, they are however in my opinion hard to care about. I really wish this wasn’t the case too, because I have genuinely always had a fascination for them. I just didn’t really appreciate the animal well I owned it, and for that reason I am going to say pass on these guys. It’s very rare that you don’t have any hard opinions on an animal, but when an animal leaves you with the same feeling as a mediocre restaurant, I would have to say take the pass on them.
But for clarity sake, I will say that they are easy to care for, and although they do require larger tanks, they don’t need heavy cleaning. I find they are generally handle friendly, and as such should be handled from a young age should that be your intention, but I still can’t say they are enjoyable to own. Then again, that can be said for almost any animal of any sort.
