PostSubject: Suggestions for future pet!   6/26/2011, 1:14 am

I have came to the conclusion that it will take awhile to even have a decent amount of L. Mucronatus to raise in my 150 gallon so I have decided I'd like to keep something else in the 150. I have a few preferences so please suggest ANYTHING with in reason. I have already purchase...

  • Eco-Earth
  • Tetrafauna Viquarium


I would like something communal to have more than 1 of and to be semi aquatic. Even if it's 80% Land 20% Water. Doesn't have to swim, just perhaps enjoys a soak Very Happy. Something active that I can see and show case (unlike the P. Imperator). I'd like to see what you guys suggest and I'll add more details as I go. Also, it'll be in my room, so not something that's gonna be TERRIBLY noisy. I can handle noise, but I don't want it to sound like a night club in there . Razz

You can tweak some of my suggestions as well, they aren't strict guide lines. I am going to be flexible on this. The tank is 6ft, by 1ft and 6inches and 2ft deep.

Hmmmm. . . I would say Bearded Dragons are your best bet. They aren't reall aquatic but wont drown themselves and they are tolerant of handling more than other herps. They're sociable and will even sit on your shoulder. I would say two or three would get along good in there.

What about a couple of dwarf caiman crocs.
If you get them as babies you'll have a few years before they get to big.
And hey since you live in Florida if they become to much to handle you can just let them loose like everyone else LOL.

Hmmm Chin Scratch, I'm not really interested in Beardies. I have had turtles before and Bex, those turtles release a Musky Scent when they feel threatened. I was looking at some Salamanders and Newts, they seem cool. But please keep the suggestions coming. I had considered Water Dragons and Basilisks but decided against them because the Tank isn't tall enough for them.

omg a false water cobra!!!!hydrodynastes gigas!!
they love swimming through some water,are very active,will utilize any space you give em,and arent as shy as most snakes.they are a very smart,visual,interactive,they will watch you watching them and will watch whatever is happening around them.
drawbacks they are rear fanged,so they are venomous but have a crappy venom injection system and you have to handle em frequently to keep em tame.like all snakes you should not keep em communaly as well.

BEARDIES or UROMASTYX would be your best bet when it comes to lizards, Ball Pythons would be cool too or if you want a chelonian, tortoises would be cool too.

Here's a cool looking URO.

I should have updated this, I purchased a Black and White Argentine Tegu sometime ago and he had been occupying the space in the 150 gal. Thank you all for your suggestions.
