Also, what lighting / heating will I need & what size / how many vents should I use ?
Many thanks in advance for any or all advice given.


Not sure if its viable but I would be tempted to get a chameleon. I don't know much about them. I imagine it may be too small later on though. If you have no choice but to use that permanently there are a number of geckos that like to climb I believe.

Good Luck and have fun! There's loads of experts who will help no doubt.
