    Before I decide on anything, I'll definitely put a lot of research in. Actually, I think the only must haves for a lizard would be it doesn't grow large and that it doesn't require a lot of attention (ie: handling).

    Don't get a Tokay Gecko, unless you like being bit, and barked at. I love them, lol.

    I have some friends with bearded dragons, one of them lets her dragon sit on her shoulder while she watches movies etc, really cool. I may get one some day. They are dessert animals, so they can be easier to "maintain" from what I have been told. But a lot of what I know is just pet shop lore/ what friends said, so take it for what it's worth.

    Biting sounds like fun :P. I kind of like mountain horned dragons. How are they?

    Anoles don't really like to be handled and stay about 6" snout to tail tip and are more laid back when kept in a group. Mainly if you mist their enclosure at least once a day so they can get a drink and put some crickets in every other day (if you see the previous ones have been eaten) and don't pester them much they'll be happier than someone who's reaching in at them every day trying to catch them and "snuggle" them.

    Most reptiles can not really be said to "enjoy" affection, basically some will "tolerate" handling better than others.

    Man, I remember that time I saw that baby anole in Florida. It was less than an inch in size and was eating little ants. It was so cute!

    For the absolute epitome of ultra-low maintainence, you could always get a Varanus plasticus

    Uromastyx are pretty cool little lizards and not a ton of work.
