My experience with this lizard breed was one of the highlights of my childhood.

Pros
-During the summer you can walk them in 90 degree weather.
-Vegetarian friendly -no crickets here!
-My lizard loved attention and gave kisses.
-His appearance is aesthetically intriguing.
-He also liked to play with toys, especially lightweight jingly balls (the ones cats use); he'd hit it with his tail as if we played baseball.

Cons
-Your electrical bill WILL go up.
-If you don't have a big enough cage for growth, your lizard will not live a long life.
-Cleaning & maintenance of your lizard's habitat can be time consuming and difficult.
