okay, well I been reading a lot... first off if you want one that will get big you will need 40 gallons mini. some Geko's are good for beginners, but they are not big and do not need the 40 gallons...

Blue Tongue Skinks I believe they are called are big, need more then 40 gallons... and move slow most of the time and do enjoy being handled...

Another great and probably the best would be Bearded Dragons... they are easily to handle and make wonderful pets... they grow fast and get between 13 inches to 24 inches but require a lot of room when they get older... 40 gallons mini.

I would avoid Iggy's as they bite and get as big as 6 feet... best bet would go to www.kingsnake.com they have information on everything and another good one is... http://www.beardeddragon.org/ they have forums which has more then just bearded dragons there... they have tons of knownledge.
