    If you want a "playful pet" I wouldn't get a pacman though you still can! But they bite anything that moves thinking its food.

    If you want I can offer a few types of herps who can be handled and "played" with.

    Bearded dragons are a really good starter reptile.

    For a starter if you want a more "sturdy" (sturdy being not agressive and skittish) loving pet for a long time a bearded dragon will be great! If of course you're willing to invest a little money for its enclosure, lights ect. and that would pay off tons in the end by having a great family pet for years and years! Geckos are a cheaper option and there's nothing wrong with being careful! Geckos are great little guys and if you are just gentle while holding them (you shouldn't be rough with any animal) they are great! But it's all up to you ad depending how younge your son is-but you could teach him easily how to be gentle and hold any animal correct I'm sure!

    I believe you said your son was 3? If so look at an adult or almost adult bearded dragon. They are much better at being held. Generally they won't jump, run, bite, or tail whip and will be much more tolerant of a 3 year olds not so dextrous clutches. When he reaches about 5 years then would be a good choice for a leopard gecko. Also bearded dragons have some small spikes and look more like a dinosaur which delights most little kids.
    I just think right now a Leo would be too delicate and they are nocturnal so they won't be as active during the day.

    How big do they get though? I don.t have to much room for another big tank but the point you made about the dinosaur is so true. Didn't even think about that lol He would flip out

    They get about 2ft and would need an enclosure that is 4x2x2 approximately. If you want something smaller you can get a rankins dragon they are a little more expensive but only get 1ft and would do fine in a 20-30g long I think. A rankins is a mini bearded dragon so would still look like a dinosaur just even smaller. I think genko is the user on here that just got one.
