empty 10 gallon... hmm...

I have an empty 10 gallon tank that is just begging me to put something in it. I don't have time for new pets in the next two months, so right now i'm just researching my options for when I start working less and have more time to spend at home. I'd really like a rubber boa, but with legality issues, I can't get one. So I'm thinking of a male kenyan sand boa because i've read that they stay small enough to live in a 10 gallon when full grown.
I also like lizards, but the ones i like need more space. would anything be happy in a 10 gallon? I'd like a pet that I can hold if I want to. Any ideas?

4 cats: Radar, Oscar, Mackintosh, Qwilleran
1 dog: Daphne
3 rabbits: Barbarella Bunny. DC's Lucy, Ricky
1 daddy-long leg spider: Spidey
8 assorted tarantulas
1 madagascar hissing cockroach: Lady
3 chickens
1 ball python: Eve
1 corn snake: Charisma
1 California kingsnake: Honey
1 tortoise: Charlie
2 Mali Uromastyx: Nick and Nora

if you want a reptile to hold, Leopard geckos are great starters and can live in 10 gallons. I currently have 3 leopard geckos in a 20 gallon, one male and two females. (yes im breeding but i have homes for eggs when breeding season starts again) I also have a corn snake. Corn snakes are also great starter snakes, cheap, and easy to find. They also take frozen/prekilled foods easier than other snakes.

These you can hold along with Childrens Python, Fat tailed geckos, Crested geckos, bearded dragons (although they eventually need a 50 gallon tank) Ball pythons (babies only will need a 20 full grown) And there are others. Reptile shows ar ethe best place because you can meet the breeders and find out whats handable and what size tank.

Thats just my $0.02

well, now I'm thinking of getting a pair of emperor scorpions (which i probably won't want to hold), or trying to catch some of the local alligator lizards (I used to have some when I was a kid, they were fun).
