Default What to get next?

Right I've decided that I'm going to get a new reptile but what should I get?
I'm really intrested in Crocodile Skinks and Blue Tounged Skinks, If anyone owns any of these please post pics of the set-up etc?, but please feel free to suggest anything, I'm more into the unusual things so I'm not that keen on beardies or leo's sorry >.<.

Thanks, Gavin

It depends what you want out of your Reptile.

I would say Water Dragon, Uromastyx, Blue Tongue Skink or a type of Monitor.

Wow gorgeous skink,

I think it depends on how much space you have for a viv, for example if you have the space for 4x2x2 viv i would say beardie, but if you have a smaller space then you will need a smaller pet (obviously), me personally, i would love a bosc or a skink, or a pair of waterdragons but i dont have the space as i live in a flat


Well thats until i win the lottery mwahahahahahahahahah
