Some of the smaller species (Somali, Sudanese, or Arabian) are around 10-12", but even the smallest uros need quite large cages compared to other lizards of similar size, due to the temperature requirements (4' x 2'). So if you want a small critter because of space concerns, a uro might not be a great choice. All of those species tend to be pretty expensive, too, relative to some other uros.
