I wouldn’t recommend them for a child. I had one and they are skiddish and can bite and that doesn’t feel good at all. They get about 2 1/2 feet in length.

i have 3 (used to be 4 but my big male stud drowned himself... go figure) and they are very aggressive and very skittish, as others suggested, either a lep. gecko, or a beardy

Ive learned that Basilisks, are a lot like Iguanas. They all have different personalities. Some like just one person while some get along with everyone. You just got to know how to handle them. Dont buy them wild. Get them small and raise them around you and your kids. Make your kids stay quiet around them and move slowly. So not to frighten them.

I find that basilisk arent good pet for a child , one they are high in matainence , second all reptiles have different personalitys , doesnt matter if 10 people tell you its not agressive , and sudden yours is .

Personality of the animals is a plus , but like said before basilisk arent reptiles to hold and cuddle with , they are for show , nice to look at and honnestly i own 2 and i breed them , i dont suggest them for a child , i rather them take a beardie or a leo. for a pet then a basilisk .

All my basilisk are handled every day , since they were 2 weeks old , even my adults , yet they still bite me . Not only that is they were hand feed for 18 months of their lives .

i dont suggest this lizard to any child under the age of 16 , for the reason , i think its a resonable age to understand tempature , humidity , feeding , breeding and more...
