Dwarf boa, corn snake, rat snake (anything up to 5ft ish), king snake, royal python.. etc.

Whatever you like really, just not anything huge, I'd say 5ft would be your maximum for that size.

Sorry, I don't know much about lizards, but my sister has three chuckwallas in a 3.5 x 2 x 2 so I guess maybe those? I don't think they are too common though. She has a beardie in a similar one, so perhaps a bearded dragon.

Dwarf boas, you get locality dwarfs (from certain parts of central america) or line bred (common boas bred to be small). I keep Nicaraguan dwarf boas, and along with those, Crawl Cay's are fairly easily found. I think I would estimate around £100 for a normal baby of either type. Matt_Baitson has a lovely red male Nic for sale right now btw, it's £200 but the colours are amazing!

Sossy mate but this viv is too small for a Beardie the minimum size viv for a single Beardie is 4ft X 2ft X 2ft and they should always be house separately. They are active and the extra inches make all the difference

A 4ft X 2ft X 2ft is just sufficient for 1-2 medium sized chuckwallas, another Ft will be required in depth and length if more chuckwallas are added, males should not be kept together. When mature a male kept with 2 females is best with this species

A beardie should be fine, 18 inches deep isn't too bad. It's really when you start dropping bits off the width when they can get too small.

Or you could go for rankins which are similar to beardies but smaller
