    Default Lizards that can live in a 10 gal tank!?

    Hey. So I want to convert my fish tank into a lizard habitat. But I don't know of any lizards that can really be comfortable ina 10 gallon horizontal set up. Any ideas on a lizard? I already have a Leopard Gecko, so I want something other than that.

    What about a Green Anole? A 10 gallon gallon tank would be a good size if you don't get more than 1.

    hmm, I dunno, they seem really jumpy and not very friendly.

    You could house multiple mourning geckos in a 10 gallon tank.

    +1 for mourning geckos.

    There are a few other gecko species that could live in a 10gal if you made it into a vert conversion, but that does take a bit of DIY.

    Here are some geckos that could fit happily in a 10 gallon and are terrestrial, according to a gecko book I have:

    Teratolepis fasciata (viper gecko)
    Geckonia chazaliae (helmeted gecko)
    Pachydactylus (thick-toed geckos)
    Pachydactylus rangei (Namib sand gecko, formerly Palmatogecko rangei)
    Teratoscincus roborowski (a smaller species of wonder gecko, or frog-eyed gecko)

    Also Stenodactylus and Diplodactylus species.
    Currently keeping Correlophus ciliatus, Rhacodactylus auriculatus, Hemitheconyx caudicinctus.
    I have also kept Phelsuma klemmeri, Eublepharis macularius, and Lampropeltis getula californiae.

    The Petco by me has them.
    Petsmart claims they "can" get them.
    Local mom-n-pop pet shops *should* be able to get them.
