Reptile Wish List!

I currently only have a Leopard Gecko but I do want other types of reptiles and here they are!

African Fat-tailed Gecko


Ball Python


Corn Snake


Crested Gecko


Gargoyle Gecko


Russian Tortoise


I also want a Bearded Dragon as does my Fiance but I don't have any photos.

Any reptile nuts out there (Daisy? )... feel free to post your lists and photos!

I totally want more reptiles, an Iguana and a russian tortoise, there are others I want but, I won't feed live food so that limits me, sorry I can't really post pics of them cause I'm on my back up computer and it barely runs.

Iguanas are cool, need a lot of space though!
I seriously cannot wait to get my Russian Tort, it might be a while though. I really hope to be able to get one in the summer though!
No problem about the photos! ^_^

I have COMPLETELY fallen in love with Geckos since getting Gaia!! All kinds! The ones I listed are just the ones that I want NOW. I want others but those are a lonnnnng way off. (Leaf tails, Leachies, etc..)

*edit- Here is a Leaf-tail, Uroplatus Phantasticus..


Oh, and some different Leo morphs I'm interested in!!

I love geckos as well I would love a leachie but they are so expensive!!! They are so fat and cute!

The only reptile I can think of off the top of my head that I want in the future is a chinese water dragon.

I would also love a backyard turtle pond someday!

That is one reason that a Leachie is in my way in the future plans, they are super expensive, lol. I met a female Leachie at a reptile meeting in Edmonton last month and she was SOOOO freaking CUTE! And omg, the feet!!!!! First time I'd seen one in person and I just fell head over heals in love with her.
I have never considered a water dragon, I've heard they are finicky to keep!

Beardies are awsome! We used to have one but he was a jerk so my Fiance gave him to his best friend who has snakes and a Beardie already.

Oh, Shannon! If you'd ever be interested in keeping a Gecko there are a lot of them that you can just feed a powdered meal replacement that you mix with water to turn into a sort of jelly and then some fruit. Crested Geckos for example just eat this and fruit. You CAN give them bugs once in a while but it isn't necessary.

I want a beardie

A tortoise would be cool.

I wonder if I can train a bird to ride one. XD (I think I've seen a vid with a tiel riding a tort! It was so cute)

I don't have any reptiles at the moment and probably wont be getting any whilst in the UAE...found birds as a replacement lol

We had 2 bearded dragons prior to moving here but I had to rehome them 6months ago when we emigrated as the logistics of flying them over weren't good given our situation

As a teenager I have kept: leopard geckos, crested geckos, pictus geckos, a chinese cave gecko, pygmy geckos, bearded dragons, a star agama, corn snakes, western hognoses, a crawl cays boa, a zebra leg tarantula

I also helped look after my exs royal python and red knee tarantula and my mums kingsnake.

The only thing I didn't get and I regret a little because I was close to getting before I sold up was an eyed lizard

Some of the gang:

Hrmm, let's see, I have had most Australian native species of snake and lizard including some awesome monitors that became the best anti car theft deterrent EVER! I must also admit to having a 12 foot long Diamond python in my 4X4 as an anti theft device for a while also
She used to just curl up around the steering wheel and scare the crap out of anyone that looked in Her head was big and so was her body!

I would love to work at a reptile park, I think I would never leave the place!

So apart from a pet croc that I did have for a while, I would like another with room to really house him well and Komodo Dragons! Just a few, breeding pairs to bring them back from the brink!

That'll do for now I think!

Oh, Tiger snakes and Death Adders, are such amazingly beautiful reptiles so is the Copperhead oh and the Red Bellied Black! Sorry, I'll never stop, I love them so much!

Oh: Useless Factoid #3 The Australian Eastern Blue Tongue and the Shingleback lizards actually, though being solitary creatures, actually mate for life! And should they loose their partner they will not seek another!

The wholesale poaching of wildlife the world over must stop!

Common sense: about as extinct as the Dodo!

I would love just a few more additions, reptile wise... I really want a blood python



They can be nippy, but if worked with well and from mellow stock, they can be great. I just love the idea of a 4-6 foot snake that weighs 20lbs because they are so chubby!!! lol

I also would love a frilled dragon, if I had the space


The reptile store in West Palm had one they would have given me for free, if I bought a cage for it because it had been there so long. He was full grown, super mellow, and would just snuggle against my shoulder closing his eyes while I rubbed his head. They need a 6" x 4" big terrarium though, they need to run and jump around and that's just not going to work for me for a long time

Other than that, I do want either a German Giant or italian leatherback beardy, I think that will be my "kids" pet when we get to that point because they are easily handled and easy to keep lol. My kids first pets will all be pets *I* want because we all know *I* will be caring for them!

The giant:


The italian leatherback:

Jenny, that Blood Python is really pretty! I love chubby snakes, lol. One reason I want a Ball Python is that they are thicker yet they don't get too long and they are usually super laid back!

Those Beardies are crazy, it'd be so cool to have a super huge Beardie like that!! I LOVE the color of the one in the second picture there, so pretty!

You should look into sand boas too then females max out at 2ft, males at 1ft, and they are chubby and super mellow. They are also cheaper than balls, too, if you want a color morph. Balls are not expensive for the normal, but if you like the color mutations they go up from $200-500 for common morphs, $1-2k for the really nice ones. Sand boas are about $60-120, so a lot more reasonable if you're able to find one or are willing to ship it

Oh I know Ball Pythons can be quite expensive! I don't particularly like the Normal BPs and I kind of want a Butter Spider morph. I go on the Edmonton Reptile and Amphibian Society's website and they have a lot of snake breeders on there. I saw someone on there selling baby BPs, the morph I want for like $80 which I thought was fantastic!

Sand boas are cute, I'd never considered them although I might have to reconsider!

I might actually be getting a hatchling Corn Snake in the next few months if Gaia's breeder has eggs. She believes one of her female Corns is gravid right now and the other is on her way so I can't wait to see baby snakes from her.
If I do get a Corn it will be a birthday present as my birthday is next month!
