Good idea to get the Bearded Dragon first. They are wonderful pets and almost always completely tame. They are perfect for a first time lizard if you want a decent size and to be able to handle them and wonderful for kids (as long as you help take care of it). My only disclaimer about Boulder/Egyptian Uros is that, from almost everyone I have talked to, Egyptians can be hard to tame. There are two that I know of (Boulder and a user Eve's Egyptian Cleo) that are sweethearts, the rest that I know do not like to be held much. If you want a Uromastyx and do not mind getting one more the size of a Bearded Dragon I would go for a Mali. If your mali throws a fit you could probably hold him down until he calms down, this is not true for a 3-4 pound Egyptian. Also, Malis are captive bred often, so are more numerous and less expensive. Now that the disclaimer is over I want you to know that I have had a wonderful experience with both my egyptians (one is still very young however). Keep doing research, find out other people's experiences and make sure to tell us if you make a decision =). Good luck with everything and welcome to the herp world.
