What pet sould i take kingsnake or igunas lizard plz anser?
I personally get the impression there are very few people near the knowledge and patience to look after an iguana and give them the attention they need and deserve.
The two reptiles in question couldn't be more different from respectively other, a king snake is far more a beginners reptile than an iguana which makes me wonder how much experience you actually have.
You must realise iguanas can grow up to 7 foot in length. They may be veggies but they can and will bite. Especially when in season (males and females). They have huge strong tail which are razor sharp that they use to whip with.
They want a whole room to themselves.
Yes they are beautiful and very interesting creatures, but largely they belong in zoos or even more preferable, in the wild.
Iguanas are not beginner reptiles, they can be quite hurtful some time and like the others said they bites can cause damage. I know a entity who had to get surgery to repair her nerves that her Iguana cut when he attacked her then she have to to physical therapy for a year. Also Igs have very specific requirements such as lighting, temperatures, diet and as adults will need atleast a 8 ft cage.
Kingsnakes, depending on what style can be fairly easy to care for as long as you research first. They are generally very docile and require 40-50 gallon tank.
If you want a lizard Leopard geckos and Bearded Dragons are recommended for beginners but just approaching Iguanas the need special diets and heat and Beaded Dragons need UV lighting.
As for snakes generally Cornsnakes make great beginner snakes but most Kings are just as uncomplicated.
BUT,Iguana's don't eat meat so they are easier to maintain.If they are properly tamed can be a great pet.
It depends on what animal path you choose,Snakes can catch out of their tanks easier so make sure you own all equipment for both of them
this includes these things no matter which animal you choose Heat lamp,10-30 gallon tank(starter),marine bowl,heat safe tank top.
Dont believe everything in the order of igana's being aggressive and nasty and you'll need hospital treatment everytime you hold it whether you have the time and patience to keep an iguana within a routine then they can make fantastic pets and individual vegetarien much easier top feed as long as you rememeber to suppliment their diet.
you can keep snakes in much smaller cage the iguanas cos they dont move around too much but for an iguana you're looking at a tank that measaure 6ftx4ftx3ft minimum to allow for climbing and movement so they can regulate their body temperature.
iguana's are not easy to train you need to establish a routine quickly and stick to it.it took me 12 months to train mine and he still have the odd tantrum but he's not aggressive just acting territorial for his tank because he's going through his first mate seasons this yr.eventually he will calm down in another 12 months when he understand whats going on more...
i've never met any keeper that needed stiches or suffuerd anything more than a slight cut from where their pet has clung on to tight at worse i've get a whip mark from the tail...
so if you hacve the time and commitment afterwards get an iggy much more interesting thean a snake...if you cannot supply the time, space, patience and commitment thjen take a snake.
Iguanas get to big for most people to feel as a pet. I would ge the king snake.
Kingsnakes are a great neophyte snake they grow around 5 foot and are great colours but they are quick to strike (unless you tame it down) and also when you pick them up they poo on you. They eat a mouse every week-10days. Dead food is better after live as live can cause damage to the snake.
Iguana's are really for experienced keepers - they grow enormously big - around - 2m(green iguana) but if you get a desert iguana they grow smaller. Iguana's are amazing animals but they do have a craving of flicking their tail and hitting your arm or something - which will hurt and cause damage. They also have claws which are highly big and sharp. They are easier to feed as they eat vegatables.
If you get an iguana you are going to inevitability a very big tank (the largest iguana was 6ft 6ins - you will enjoy to make a custom built one or convert a room for it. They also need uv light and a grill lamp to keep them warm. You can house-train them down but they can still be unpredictable.
Kingsnakes however don't a large vivarium around 3ft should do and they don't need uv light - don't bestow them a heat lamp as snakes have a dependence of wrapping themselfs around the light and burning themselfs - which will result in vet bills and treatment. You can use a under reservoir heat mat to heat the tank. You will call for to handle it every day for around 10-15 minutes to tame it down - once it is house-train they are a great pet.
If this is your first reptile I would say get a kingsnake.
Or you could try a corn snake, rat snake or leopard gecko - these are all unforced to tame beginner reptiles.
Iguana's should be left to experienced keeper.
heating and frothy you must get right,as i said before a joy to preserve.failing all this try for a corn snake
Neither. I'm assuming you haven't have a reptile before, if you had hold done you wouldn't be asking online, you'd be researching the needs of each. If you've never kept reptiles, these breeds are not suitable for a first pet. I'd suggest a corn snake, or beard dragon as a beginner pet. All reptiles require a more controlled environment than other pets, with the aid of heating, lighting etc. Iguanas return with very large, and inexperienced owners can end up human being seriously hurt or even hospitalised simply by tail whipping. King snakes are not quite so bad, but I'd still not recommend them.
