Meh. If I get one, it's gonna be black.

How big a tank do you have it in, Mark?

lol.. dont think you can get them in captivity which are black, but no idea really.. they need a 4ft x 2ft tank to live in.. which is the same size as for the snake.

its chameleons which change colour, and are pretty cool to watch too!

Joga.. nah they arent too bad, they dont really get big enough to cause problems.. only 6-8 foot, and all they do is give you a hug!

I have a 72x18 tank, would that work?

And why can't I keep the black one, is it protected or something?

ive just never seen a black one in captivity, that picture is of a wild one, an Eastern Bearded Dragon;



though when they are pissed their beards go black..



that would probably be too small for an adult, but could house one for a couple of years..

But very cool Mark. I've always wanted a snake but my mom won't let me get one until I have my own place.

Corn snake, ball python are probably the easiest and cheapest, which dont grow too big, they could probably live in the tank youve got.. type in (snake name) caresheet into google, there are some pretty good ones out there.. you could try looking on www.faunaclassfields.com for snakes, and www.beardeddragoncaresheet.org to have a look at the type of care they need.

a 20g long is probably too small for a beardie, vivs are very easy and very cheap to build..



This took me a day or so to build, and will happily hold the boa for its whole life..

Cool, thanks.
I've never really thought of building a terrarium.
My dad has a whole bunch of plexiglas in the garage, so maybe that would work.
