Hi, nervous novices here. My daughter (aged
is very keen to have a pet lizard. I have encouraged her to do some research, (although I will of course be overseeing all the care) and it seems that leopard geckos are recommend as good for beginners. I have joined this forum so that we can both continue to find out more before taking the plunge. I have never kept any kind of reptile before so feel quite daunted reading caresheets etc that don't seem to agree with each other. Would you recommend the leopard gecko as a good pet species please? We would like to be able to handle our pet if possible. If not, which species would you recommend? I must admit I quite like the look of the crested geckos but they look more delicate.
Many thanks for reading.
