The point is, which species. Any species you choose will have both a positive(if your good) and a negative effect.

About conservation, some will argue, and some means, theres always somebody. Awareness is the key, the more humans that are aware of a species, the more support can be gained when actually needed.

As an example, if bearded dragons were in trouble in nature, people from nearly every country would be there to offer support. Yet if a netted dragon was in trouble. The comment would be, NETTED DRAGON???? what the heck is that. They occur side by side in nature, but most people of the world do not know what a netted dragon is. Which do you think people will support, the known species, or some other species.

Back to the actual problem, you as an individual, cannot keep hundreds or produce hundreds for others to keep. So awareness will be a minimum.

You could with a smaller species where SPACE is not such a huge requirement.

So I say, ARGUS montiors, a bucket of fun, they are one of the few TEACHING monitors. That is, They will survive your mistakes. And they will do those Crazy ideas you come up with, you know, tubes between cages. Best of luck
