Default New breeding project

I'm considering breeding a new species of lizard into the pet trade here are the two options
Broadheaded skinks
9-13 Inches
Clutch size 8-13
Kinda dull coloration
handleable

Six lined racerunners
7-9 Inches
Clutch size 1-8
More vibrant
Smaller so kinda hard to handle

So just let me know what you think would be more desirable
Thank you

Breed whichever one you prefer. You are not going to stop either species being traded as wild caught from breeding the odd clutch.

Either of those would be a breath of fresh air to the hobby, as you never see either of them offered for sale. The racerunners would be the more interesting of the 2, IMO.

IMO I prefer skinks, and after looking them up, the size of them, fact youíre can handle and the colour I also like! Both beautiful lizards though, Iím just a more hands on person and prefer the look and fact they get bigger! If and when you do breed, would be great if you could document it on here if you can as always interesting to see new animals being bred!

The runners are so pretty

being easier to handle, I think the skinks would prove more popular maybe?

Broad heads are all over Florida. They bite. Fun to catch and release tho.
