Well, lets see, for the leo:
- 15 gal tank with lid (25$)
- Heat lamp / fixture (20$)
- Heat pad *optional (15$)
- Timer *optional (10$)
- Substrate (10$)
- Hide box (5$)
- Food dish (5$)
- Water Dish (5$)
- Branches, rocks, another hide, etc (15$)
- Vitamin/calcium supplement (15$)
- Spray bottle (5$)
= 115$ + Leopard gecko (50$ - 200$, depending on age, colour)
+ Vet check / fecal (50$)
+ crickets, mealworms (5-10$/week)

Well, lets see, for the leo:
- 30 gal tank with locking lid (50$)
- Light (regular 40W bulb) and fixture (15$)
- Timer (10$)
- Heat pad (20$)
- Substrate (mulch: 6$, papertowel/newspaper: 1$)
- Hide box (8$)
- Water Dish (big enough for soaking) (8$)
- Branches, rocks, another hide, fake plant, etc (20$)
- Pump spray bottle (9$)
= 285$ + Snake (50$ - 200$ depending on species, age, colour)
+ Vet check / fecal (50$)
+ 1 food item per week (1-3$)

Add an extra 200$ for emergencies, taxes, other stuff you might want.

Now these are only estimates, but they'll give you an idea of what the costs might be. Keep in mind you need to RESEARCH your butt off before buying anything!
