isnt a rankins a small version of a beardie wiv a diff pattern??

yeah a rankin is a small version of a beardie. Rankins seem to be very weak, and can definately be fragile. as much as i love mine, i find them to be a bit of a pain in the bum as far as hardiness is concerned n they are pathetically soft n weak compared to beardies. though ours are only young so hopefully when they are grown there will be less problems, that is if they get to be fully grown, they are so up and down its unbelievable. the smallest of temp fluctuation n ours are flat on the floor lilke they are dyin of heat stroke! lol then take up out leave um at room temp for a while n they are upright again. id say go for a beardie, more handlable and hardy

I Think Rankins Are Harder To Come By Now...

And Depends On If There Are Many About. Popurlarity.

I Fell If Going For A Middle Sized Lizard, You May aswell Get A Beardie. It's Just An Extra Foot On The Vivarium (3 to a 4ft).
