Default Desert reptile species

I am looking for desert/dry grassland lizard species, snake species and frogs/toads for my reptile room.

Leopard geckos are native to middle eastern desserts, but they live on rocky conditions, NOT SAND. If you wanted a sand-living species, sand snakes come to mind: they live in the sand, and sit under it in wait of prey. pretty neat as a pet, but you don't see them much.

I would argue that the general discussion section of a DART FROG forum isn't the best place to be inquiring about such a broad subject that also doesn't relate to the forum almost at all...

Or perhaps find a reptile forum? At the very least, this probably belongs in the lounge.

Agreed, good suggestion. Thread moved.

There aren't super active US reptile forums and the U.K. one doesn't work for me, I can't post at all

I'm obsessed with bearded dragons because they are super friendly and like to hang out with their humans, but I don't have one. If I were you I would look into those.

Chuckwallas are pretty cool. Horned lizards are cool too but are difficult in captivity. Gilas and beadeds also come to mind. Even the common western fence lizards, alligator lizards and banded geckos would make an interesting pet.

I have a pair of uromastyx geryi. They are bright colors and live off of dark leafy greens. Easy to care for once you have a cage setup. They just need a really hot basking area, 120 degrees Farenheight at least.
