    ive had a tarantula and boy are they tough! for me anyways. especialy when it comes to molting. i have always wanted a scorpion but the thing about them is their temper and the two weapons. tarantulas have fangs,which they hardly ever use in defense,....and then theres the hairs, which will drive you friggan insane! i was pretty allergic(doctor said anyways) to the hairs and it made rashes that lasted for several days untreated. but its ur decision!

    ANTS!

    Im getting a set up for a Camponotus Queen Colony (thats carpenter ants) in a terrium if you put pleanty of rotting wood in their you will have tons of room for them! If you need help finding a queen let me know! They are GREAt to keep expecialy once you start getting into the 400 500 ants...

    I know of a couple ways to keep them so you can acutaly see the ants, and a couple ways to where you dont but they can thrive either way.

    Hears one of my newer colony's i made out of plaster! Solenopsis molesta (this one gets multiple queens)


    If we lived in Europe we wouldnt have to worry about catchign our own... we could simply purchase our own. But trade law, to keep new pests out of the states agraculture is why we cant purchase Live colonys... But You can easly catch a native one.. People acutaly keep fire ants! But They are great and like I said once you get a bunch of them you will be proud!

    Their are alot of ways to keep them, and feed them, and REALLY easy!

Cresties might work, if you can turn the tank on end to give them vertical room; that might also be good for some tree frogs.
    Wouldn't one of the mud or musk turtles fit the bill of a small, relatively undemanding turtle?

    Newts perhaps. Pleurodeles waltl or Triturus karelinii would fit the bill well.

    A pair of bearded dragons would go perfect in there. I breed them and i keep the parents in a 40 gallon breeder.

    yea then you could feed them some Harvester ants! To bad you probably dont live in central Mid west cause then you could simply start a small colony and occasionaly let them into youre dragons layer!! I hear bearded Dragons love them, plus they are healthy! Where ealse are they going to get that formic acid for their health! (it is bearded dragons that like Harvester ants right?)

    Cheers

    Probably, or a male map turtle (they get to about 3", while females can exceed 9").

    I think you may be confusing them with horned lizards (aka 'horny toads'), which require a diet of ants to survive.

    Leopard geckos. I have two. Just don't put two males in there. I'd just get females if I was you. Three or so would be happy in there.
