It's a bit small for a leopard gecko, as they are not climbers and need more floor space. Does it have a heat light? You'll need that for lizards. What about 2 small cameleons? Or anole lizards? Slate can be broken into smaller pieces and stacked to create a hid. Rocks too, such as a piece of flagstone, makes nice lounging for lizards. You could also go look at firebelly toads. They need a moist environment, so you'd have to put a water bowl of some sort in the cage, but could do some nice things with that. Playsand is a great substrate, which is so cheap to buy. Petsmart has all these types of lizards. Best of luck.



Just because animals can't talk, does not mean they should not be heard

unfortunately, red claw crabs are brackish and need a bit of salt.

fire belly or yellow belly toads,cute,room temp,live food though,locus,crickets,meal worms
(freshly shed ones go down well)

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

I've kept cresties before, and a 12"x12"x12" is to small - They need more room, even as babies, to move around. You could look into dart frogs, although I haven't kept them, I've heard that certain species can thrive in small habitats :)

It's funnier in Enochian.

DO NOT FEED BABY FOOD TO A CRESTED.

its very bad for them. if you must feed 'human food' use a puree of mixed fruit from the blender. available also is repashy, a powder diet that contains all the nutrients your crestie will require. supplementing with crickets as a treat is okay, just dust them with calcium.

a 12x12x12 would be okay for a baby crested but you would need to upgrade after awhile. another option is a gargoyle gecko (same diet as a crestie) but again you would have to upgrade as it gets older.

1.1 boa constrictors (Drake and Nagini), 2.0 ball pythons (Jack the Ripper and Monty Python), 0.1 coastal carpet python (Bitey), 2.3 corn snakes (Balthazar, Apollo, Kink, London and Carmen Elektra) 1.0 mexican rosy boa (Brom) 2.0 bettas (Fuego and Corphish) 0.0.2 kuhli loaches (zig and zag)
