Would like to get a monitor or tegu . But I dont think the space I have is large enough. 6x2x3 .
What would you recommend for the space I have.

Odatria species are the way to go.
Of course theres V.acanthurus... but there are other odatria sp.
Varanus tristis tristis
Varanus tristis orientalis
My personal favourite- varanus pilbarensis! :)
Theres plenty to choose from!!
You COULD house a gold tegu in that seeing as theyre so light bodied!

It's the same story as with any other lizard some will never tame down even some beardies and Leo's I've seen are nasty little buggers

My gold is fine to handle... just put the time and effort in, and you should be fine. Its an undeserved reputation. Most golds ive seen are pretty docile!:)
