Default small green lizards.

Hullo. I have been thinking of getting something just to look at as opposed to handling and not being very keen on geckos (sorry!) have been looking at: agamas, anoles, eyed lizards, green basilisks. I have just bought myself a book on ebay, but wondered if I'd missed something. I am not keen on the green anoles, they look a bit odd, like their heads seem too big. I saw some small elegant lizards in a pet shop recently that were housed together, but I didn't take note of the species. I have a three foot viv that I would like to start it/them off in as juveniles, but am happy to upgrade if they are going to grow big enough to require it. I don't want any more than three as a group, or a single animal. Suggestions? I'd like to have found out what the little green ones were... also emerald swifts have come up, but may not be suitable for a wooden viv.

GThey might have been a species of Phelsuma (day geckos).

Look up day geckos. Bet it was a type of those. Many different types. All small lizards and lovely bright colours!

nope, they were less squashy looking, finer built. I am not a fan of any geckos I'm afraid, they look a bit... sticky..

Day geckos can be ‘finer built’. Some can be tiny!
Haha sticky? Never heard of that before!
