would a fire skink be alright as a first lizard? i saw one today and thought it was absolutely stunning. i have a 24" viv spare, but i gather that 24" is the bare minimum? could anyone reccomened an indepth care sheet? id be more than willing to put the research time in but thought id best check if there more specialist as (although iv kept many other things) iv never kept lizards before.

also could someone clear this up: what substrate is best for them? the shop i saw them in had them on dry sand, but all caresheets and photos iv seen so far say they need a high humidity substrate (sphagnum)? bit worried about the one in the shop now if thats the case...

really you can have any rep you like as a first rep. yes some are easier to keep than others but as long as you research the ass off it and give the rep all its needs then you can have anything you want really but research is the main thing here : victory:
