Smile Beardy or Rankin? Male or female?

Hi All

We'd like to get a lizard as a family pet, and are busy researching all our options. I'm so impressed with how much helpful stuff is on this site!

We have space for a 4ft viv, but are trying to decide between Rankins or a Bearded Dragon.

I know the beadies are bigger and more colourful, but is there any major difference temperament - wise? Which would be better as a family pet for my kids to handle? (supervised, obviously!)

Also, is it better to get a pair or keep a solitary animal? If we go for a pair, what gender combination is best?

Finally, we'd much rather rehome than buy from a pet store - any general advise regarding this?

Thank you in advance!
