I would like to know what lizard everyone would suggest as the best for me. Here are some things to keep in mind...
-small. not a monitor or tegu. something that is less than 3 ft long
-handleable. I know that lizards and reptiles are not really known to be something to be holding a lot, but
not going to run away at the first chance.
-food... i am cool with vegetables, any worms, rodents, fruits, special pellet do-das. I have snakes, not
had many lizards in the past, and this is because crickets are a NO NO NO NO!!!!!!!!!!!

I know there are no perfect lizards. I can compromise on a lot of stuff. just tell me what you think.

Why are crickets a "No no no"?

I sort of disagree on the handling part. Some lizards are really okay with being handled and some even love it.

You’ve got some pretty high standards for a lizard, from which I assume comes from parents? Diet-wise your best option is a crested gecko, but even they still need crickets as well. However, most typically do not enjoy handling very well.

Your best bet is a Uromastyx, but keep in mind you have to keep their enclosures VERY hot. They are herbivorous and you MUST keep track of their diet.

I also see you have posted this on multiple forums. This is unnecessary.
