20 gal tank...

I have a 20 gal tank and was wondering what kind of herps I could get for it. I want something that is fairly handable and has a good temperment and a little different then the commen leopard geckos and corns.( not that I have anything against either, I have a corn and think leos are stunning i just don't want one.) I was thinking of some sort of skink or plated lizard if a 20 gal is ok for them, or possibly a small boa or a some sort of colubrid.
thx everyone

rosy boas, scorps, pac man frog, tarantula, Whites tree frog (AKA dumpy frog), anoles, hissing cockroachs, lots of diff type frog set ups.
If you want to sell your kidney you could get an anthill python, they are supposed to be REALLY tiny, like getting up to 3ft max or something, but I could be wrong.

You could also use it for a baby tort set up, since they grow so slow (don't quote me on that! lol) a 20 gal long would be fine for a while. So you would have enough time to build a bigger cage.

Thamnophis ...seen also here...

Many folks will never realise how great the Thamnophis group is in a collection. They are gorgeous, hardy, thrive on a variety of foods and great for beginners for starters. As you can see, there is a variety of species that are there for the choosing. All of them are very beautiful specimens. Many folks will just jump to the gun and say they smell bad, or are to common. But the truth be known, they are quite the opposite. I have never had one musk past the first week of keeping one, nor bite while in my care. A 20 gallon is sufficient room for any ssp you can think of.

I think garters would be WAY too active for a 20 gal. There are very few herps that can be housed comfortably in an enclosure that small, but sand boas, rosy boas, hognoses, and anthill pythons will do fine in one that size. I can't really think of much else in the way of snakes....

Neither of my garters have ever musked on me, and they aren't used to being handled at all. I try and avoid it as much as possible as they'll be returning to the great outdoors in the spring.

They do tend to eat and poo like mad though. And despite being ground dwellers they'll happily climb any wood you put in the tank
