This fella is just asking for some insight from those with experience.

Ok, heres the deal.

You want climber?

Easy.

Check out Cresteds, if you have experience.
If not, start with something easy like mediterranean house geckos - they are cheap, easy to maintain, and really are pretty cool to watch (let alone breed!)
Theres also things like 'skunk' geckos (white lined) and tokays - if you dont mind a critter you really shouldnt be handling much.
Again, if you dont mind a non-handle species, day geckos are AWESOME display animals - they are relatively small, quite easy to take care of, and absolutely B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L.

Now, if you DONT want a climber - and really think about this, as climbers can be hard to contain if you arent careful - there are species like Picta (ocelot) geckos, cat geckos, banded geckos...

Seriously man, take your time and look around - theres a species for everyone, and what you may like isnt necessarily what I may like, ya know?

Take your time, find something that really fits your desires.
