You should be able to get a frilly and build a nice enclosure on that budget. Do a search on this site for enclosure ideas. Frillies can get very tame, but you do need to work with them a little. Otherwise a bearded dragon might be more naturally tame. For color, I dont know--those are pretty extreme colors, and these guys are going to be more predominantly brown, grey, with color in the frill. You could think about a water dragon for a real green lizard, but that is more work to tame.
Keep looking around and search some care sheets too!
:Well, I am 15 years old and looking to buy a lizard for my room. I am very responsible for my age I guess because most other kids would not be doing research as to what I should get. I have been looking for like a month and still have no idea what to get. I want something a little like this ...
:- 1-2 feet or so long
:- Very tame yet not totally boring (as in it will still walk on me and stuff)
:- Colorful and interesting looking
:- Looking for one of the following colors: Green, Red, Orange, Yellow. Pretty much anything but brown
:- Not a skink (my stepmom doesn't want me to get one for some reason)
:Now I can take care of it and I have about 500$ to spend on a tank and everything. I plan on doing a tube-feeding type system where you drop the food in and they scurry out the hole in the tube and the lizard gets them. Is this optimal or is there a better way?
:I also plan on building my own tank. I am very experienced with this as I have built 3 100 Gallon Fish tanks in the past and never had a leak. Long story short: my dad works in a fish-store. What is the tank size I will need for the kind that you recomend?
:Also, I have heard about duos and trios of lizards (1.1 or a 1.2) and I think this could work, but if I got this I would want their combined length to be no longer than 3 feet. What is a good pair/trio for this?
:I know I have a lot of questions but I can't seem to find a lot of info on the net. Please help!
:Thanks A lot,
