Snakes and lizards make up the majority of reptiles housed domestically in Australia. Reptiles are increasing in popularity largely because of reduced space requirements and they are relatively inexpensive to keep (although initial purchase costs can be high).
Reptiles are quiet, rarely smell and require minimal cleaning. You can always find a reptile to suit your own living requirements.
