What You’ll Need for Your Pet Lizard
Like other scaly species, most of the lizards you’ll find for sale at Petco spend the majority of their lives in a terrarium. Pet lizards require a well-maintained tank for their health and wellness. Some of the pet lizards you find at Petco, like the bearded dragon or leopard gecko, will feel right at home in a 20 gallon habitat, though some may eventually require larger spaces as they grow. You’ll want to ensure your pet lizard has enough space in their tank for species-specific activity and exercise. Additional habitat items you will need include heating and lighting, substrate, basking platforms, and other decor. Remember, the supplies you’ll need will depend on the specific species of lizard you select. Be sure to discuss your lizard’s needs with a Petco sales partner online or in store.
That depends on your definition of “friendly”. Leopard Geckos are known for their unusually gentle dispositions, but don’t enjoy much handling. The Bearded Dragon, on the other hand, tolerates more frequent handling and human interaction.
Each lizard species has their own unique requirements for their habitats. Generally speaking, you’ll need a properly sized enclosure, heating element, substrate, decor, hideaways, and food and water accessories.
