I'm currently thinking about getting a new reptilian pet, but I'm not entirely sure what kind would best suit me. I had a bearded dragon for several years that was like a child to me, but I recently had to have him put down. I would love to have another Bearded Dragon, but I think it would be too painful for me right now. I'm almost in tears as it is, just thinking about my little baby boy. That said, I can't picture myself going for the extended period of time that would be necessary for me to heal from my recent loss without another reptile around the place.
Basically, I'm just looking for someone to throw some potentials my way. I've owned several different herps over the years, so I'm open to animals that are beyond beginning level. I can accommodate either a larger animal or a small one, however climate is a bit of an issue (I live in dry, dry Las Vegas). I'm willing (and planning) to perform extensive research before I buy. I'd rather look into lizards rather than snakes, but the biggest thing I'm looking for right now is something that would enjoy to be handled. Any suggestions are appreciated. =)
