Nice, I had a few in my life when I was young. They are fun. Do you get these wild over there or pet stores?

Gator tastes more fishy than chickeny. I would never eat an iguana. They look gross.

The biggest lizards we have are merauke blue tongue skinks they will grow to be 3+ foot long.
The yellow one with the reduced pattern isn’t in our possession yet, just waiting on the weather to cool off so she can be shipped to us.
The other one is our suspected male, Heinz. Absolutely obsessed with them.

I would love some skinks, but I don't think I could start a colony of live food

Well I don't have any big lizards, but my local high school has a wildlife museum that's got a pair of full grown iguanas, carpet pythons, monitor lizards, skinks, and pretty much anything else you can think of.

Not really much live food needed! Babies eat primarily grain free cat food, and adults eat grain free dog food. With mixes of certain fruits, veggies, Repashy grub pie, unseasoned meats, etc.
Live insects are good to have, but you probably wouldn’t need to start a colony of anything unless you had more than few skinks. We have colonies of dubia roaches but that’s because our panther chameleon needs fed insects daily. Our skink has shown no interest in live insects honestly.

They don't taste fishy. The only thing I can compare it to is something most people also haven't eaten, Rattlesnake. The taste is also similar to frog legs but not chicken nor fish. 'Gator tail is good.

I love the Bearded Dragons. I see them in the pet store and they are always staring at what goes by and seeming very friendly. They get fairly big too.
