as you might no i've been looking around for new to get a new lizard for a while now and i thought i had settled on a chuckwalla, but i've realised that i need a spare £500 to get a pair so i've been put off, so any sujestions on a lizard that is £70 and under, can live a 5'2'2 and under, and which is CB.... but not a beardie!!!!:lol2:

What about an aussie water dragon? Seen some relatively cheap recently. Similar to a beardie in apperance, but requirements are different.
How about some plated lizards, used to be more popular... people seem to be giving them away now.
A skink... or some skinks. Cheap and easy husbandry (obviously this is a generalisation...).

Whoever said £500 for a pair is ripping you off unless they are REALLY special. My last pair were just under £300 and even that I thought was a bit overpriced - but to be honest I was fed up with looking for them lol.

I agree with the chap above, blue tongues are awesome lizards...generally very placid. My two are lovely - a bit shy but still wicked. They vary massively in price depending on where you go.

Get a beardie then...

Unfortunately, BTS and ackies aside, there aren't many lizards around that fit your criteria. Most of the ones that do are more than £70...

The "best" lizards for your average keeper are ones that fit certain criteria - easy to breed, available in numbers, handleable, hardy etc. That's why beardies and leos are so common and so inexpensive. If you want something "different" but still matching a set of criteria, you will have to pay a premium for it, or accept that it may be a little harder to tame down than a beardie...
