Default Thinking about a lizard..

Well i'm sort of thinking about a lizard, maybe a tortoise or an amphibian or something. I don't dislike beardies but i'm sort of wondering if there is anything else quite interesting out there. I don't have space for an iguana and i don't really want an ackie but i'm not sure.. What do you guys think? Also I don't really want a gecko..

lol you eliminated alot there but there lot more rang idont want geckos etc say what you want from the lizard that way we can help more
do you want it:
handleable?
nocturnal/diurnal?
high maintenance/low maintenance?
tropical/desert?
big/medium/small?
and whats your budget?

not everyone like what most people say are for begginners id say most are suitable but it depends purely on you there no reason a begginner couldnt start with a cham aslong as they do the research

i would say look into ackies if you do have the space althought thats my opinoin but tthey are very liveily

Not to bothered about maintenance

ive only ever kept black and white tegus as my big lizards, there fairly easy to handle as long as you handle them reguarly, as long as you put the time into them you will have a great tegu on your hands. ther price ranges between £150 - £200+

What are the housing requirments of bearded dragons as adults? Can you put a baby in an adults enclosure and how hot do they need to be? Can I keep two in one viv? Two females? Sorry for all the nooby questions but im new to lizards
