I agree with the below post. It really depends on what you are looking for personally. :)
Corn snakes ar easy to care for but I think uros and chameleons are too ONLY because I've had experience with everything from carnivores and insectivores to omnivores and strictly herbivorous reptiles. Chameleons, though some species like the veils, panthers and jackson's are more hardy, have special needs and can stress easily as posted below.
Uros require a diet mostly of fruits/veggies (see iguana salad on www.anapsid.org) but also take SOME insects but not near as many as your local pet store may have you believe.
All three are wonderful to work with but it depends on what you are looking for.
Do you want an animal that is highly active and that you CAN handle? Do you want an animal of a real sluggish and easy to handle nature or do you want a display animal that you more than likely CANNOT handle but can enjoy caring for and observing?
Once you decide questions like this, then ask along those guidelines and there are sure to be some specimens off hand we could recommend. :D

Hope this helped! :)
