    I have a giant African plated rainbow lizard. Will get pics. tonight----Hubby has the camera right now. I think he's pretty cool, and very easy to care for. I bought him/her at a reptile show only because he was $20 and a good-size lizard. I didn't even have a cage, so my sister bought me one there, and then built me an awesome one he's in now. He loves dubia roaches and likes mealworms-----we named him Gene after Gene Simmons.

    I currently have 6 leopard geckos but Have had upwards of 100 in my breeding'heyday' . I got out of the hobby and into others but recently went with a very good friends son ( also a friend ) to a reptile show about 2 hrs away and came home with the geckos and some snakes ( who live at his house!) I used to breed ball pythons and my fantasy is someday owning a pair of high white percentage pieds. . . not happening any time soon. However I am enjoying living through his collection ( I belive albino het's , a super pastel, a pastel and a pinstripe.. . and some normals). My other half will not let me get snakes again- had a really bad experience with some BP's from an expo in the past. I have also had Guyanan Red Tail boa's , blood pythons and Crested Geckos.

    Love reptiles, but still have not had a chance to own them, just work with them. Would love to work up to an Argentine black and white tegu:
