having bread leos and kept beaded dragons I would recomend the beadie. they are big enough to let out of the viv to run around the living room. leos are a bit too small and can easily disappear. but I must say the majority of my leos have been active in the day time when kept in a colony but been hardcore nocturnal when kept alone.

if you have £350 to spend you could get a cheap second hand 3 foot viv and 4/5 leos and still have change for viv decorations

just dont go to pets at home way over priced and my local branch sells beadies with mites

Please don't stuff 4/5 leos in a mere 3ft viv! You're best off starting with just one if you're beginning reptile keeping, however many keepers recommend housing them alone anyway.

Amen to that, almost spat out my tea! I don't even keep Leo's or ever researched them but even I know 5 in a 3ft viv is far too many.

I started with bearded dragons and have increased my collection of them at present I have 7 and also added to my collection a gargoyle gecko who can be active through the day and also at night and also have a corn snake but like said befor aslong as you do the correct research any rep can be good for starting out my Garg for instance only cost aroung 70 or do pounds to start out for everything (as my room temp didnt require me to have any extra heating for him) but have had to buy him a new home since

I started with leopard geckos, and found them very low maintenance, and easy to care for.

Besides this, they also have a nice personality, after you accommodate them with you handling them manually, they will be very playful and loving.
