I find Sceloporus (swifts) to be very charming pets. Not the kind of pet that you take out and hold, but very interesting to watch. I see the head bobs for courting and territory assertion, I see their excitement when I approach the tank with a bag of crickets. They are absolutely not as dumb as some ignorant people think, and clearly know that a plastic bag in my hand means dinner very soon. They will also take waxworms right from my hand if they are hanging upside down from the screen top.

I only wish I could get a trio of Texas banded geckos, since my former ones died of old age. I had those little cuties for years! I have been looking and looking, went to a reptile show, and came up with nothing. In NYC, there aren't any places to go hunting those guys. I also wish I could get some more female utas to keep my male company.

I am just wild about tiny lizards, and my tanks for them look like a piece of the desert snipped out and fit into a tank.
