    So here we go again :)

    My son and I have discussed owning snakes, and scorpions, and numerous other pets (frogs, mantids, various lizards, etc.) to go with our White Monster (my Morkie pup) and our tarantula collection.

    We've finally found a pet that we both agree on (that was the hardest part) and that will survive in our environment without a lot of time spent on maintenance. Since i work 2 jobs and he's at school, we needed something low maintenance that didn't require a lot of time in setup and daily support to keep it alive and happy.

    And that is the Leopard Gecko :D

    So then we had to choose which morph. After weeks of debate and going back and forth we've decided on either the normal morph or the tangerine morph. And here's where we're stuck ;) It will probably come down to which is available when we can make the order.

    i like the coloring on the normal myself, my son is sold on the tangerine. I also like the Mack and the snow/blizzard morphs. Which would you choose?

    The breeder he buys from is a good friend of mine.

    Since y'all are talking about lizards, wheres a good place to get a blue tongued skink, preferably well started but not an adult? Lllreptile? I like the northern ones, which I understand are rather pricey :(
