That's what I was thinking about the turtle. I know the 3 striped mud is small, but I believe turtles need more space in relation to their size than most other herps. Honestly, the crested would be my last choice on the list. At this time, I think I am leaning toward the pictus geckos or the western hognose snake. We'll see.
