    I know I didn't represnt all or even most of the families out there but I think this should cover some of the more common ones (I'll give taxonomic family name with common name after for convenience).
    GO SKINKS GO!!

    That is a hard poll. I love the iguana's but there are several other ones that I think are pretty cool as well.

    I also like the green tree boas and I like to "look" at the tarantulas.

    Hello,

    I chose geckos because I find them fascinating. I am also a massive iguana fan however. I also like ETB's and GTP's.

    OOPS! I forgot Tegus in the list. Don't count them as varanids. Put them as other and leave a comment. Sorry to all you Tegu owners, I knew I'd forget something!

    I love the beardies and the uros, so they obviously get my vote! I do like the iggys as well, but they are runners up :(

    I had to go with the beardies especially for their personalities. Ducky was sitting there looking at me waiting so I took him out and put him on the middle of the bed. He came right to the bottom of the bed and is sitting here looking at me.

    I made it so we could only pick one so that it would be challenging and make you think. I know I had difficulty between several of those but that's what makes it a good poll in my opinion (besides, there can't be 5 coolest herp families at the same time, can there?)

    Okay, so far only little old me picked the Cham family. They fascinate me - from their amazing eyes to thier colour changes to thier tongues - the list goes on.

    that's not to say that I don't love a lot of other species too - GTP's, BRB's, ETB's, igs, BD's - that list goes on too lol

    I love beardies but geckos win by far as the coolest family! From leos to rhacs, from uruplatus to vittatus there's a gecko for everyone =)

    For sheer coolness it has to be the crocodilian family - just can't get cooler looking than those crocs and gators!:p Now, if it was my favourite herp that would be another story..:D
