there are several several wonderful kinds of skinks that would do great in a "ground" tank, as well as the Timor Monitor, one of the smallest monitor lizards available in pet trade, they only grow to about 20-30 inches long.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

Thanks for the info...we really need all the tips we can get..this will be our first time for this type of pet, and of course we want to do the best prep possible, and get as much info as we can!

here are some care sheets for blue tongued skinks, timor monitors and bearded dragons. as far as personality goes, skinks can be anywhere across the chart from snake-like indifference to puppy dog goofy, timors (if you get them very young) are VERY interactive, tameable and trainable, whereas bearded dragons are more of a bump-on-a-log but in a very companionable way.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
