Have a peek at this link. It is by Mellissa Kaplan (she wrote Iguanna's for dummies) She is quite an amazing woman and has some great advice to help you out.
Evil... evil, EVIL enemy of every pet owner in the world. Kaplan is not pro-reptile, she is anti pet ownership. She's just more subtle about it than PeTA, but the end goals and ideals are the same. She's not a credible source for anything at any time, because everything she has ever written is either incorrect or so loaded with propagandist messages as to be useless.
