What Are Some Types of Pet Lizards?

Types of pet lizards include the leopard gecko, the crested gecko, the bearded dragon, the green iguana and the Chinese water dragon. The pet lizards' sizes, how easy they are to care for and the costs of maintaining them determine their suitability for either the beginner or the expert keepers.

Pet lizards are ideal pets because they do not take up much space, they are not messy or loud, and their care is not time-consuming. However, although they have differing personalities, they are not affectionate and may stress easily, and some may bite in fear or distress if they are not comfortable with handling.
