    new lizard (long tailed grass lizard)

    He is really cool i just got him today. I have a couple questions..
    Ok petco said that they become tame with regular handling which might be true but is it? Also the guy doesn't have a name i can't think of one what do u guys think?


    P.S. sorry about the last post about emeralds i am new to this.

    Be very carefull when handling a small lizard. Most really dont like to be handled and it can be very stressful on them.

    If I am thinking about the same type of long tail grass lizard as you have I dont recommend handling it much, if at all.

    your enclosure sounds great, and small lizards are very easy to frighten and/or stress so be careful if u do want to tame him. i would handle once or twice a week, and for a short period of time, 10-15 minutes. hope this helps, and if u need anymore help, PM me.

    I am heaven sent, don't you dare forget. I am all you've ever wanted, what all the other boys all promised. Sorry I told. I just needed you to know. I think in decimals and dollars. I am the cause to all your problems, shelter from cold. We are never alone. Coordinate brain and mouth. Then ask me whats it like to have myself so figured out. I wish I knew...

    Yours Truly,

    here's something crazy about handling small lizards. i adopted an anole from my friend at a pet store ...i guess someone gave it to them because it was attacked by their cat. it's missing a foot, and has scabs and part of a missing tail. they were also feeding it lettuce for some odd reason. anyway, you'd think that he'd be afraid to death of anything large since it was attacked. but he loves being held oddly enough. i can just reach in and get him no chasing. and he turns a happy shade of green when i handle and pet him. it's an odd story. i named him ravioli
