Lizards are covered in scales. They can have spikes, horns, frills and crests. They look very exotic. Some are smooth and some have horns. They all have tales. Some lizards have four legs, some have two legs and some have none.
DO LIZARDS ACT?
Some lizards flick their tongue out to "taste" the air and pass all of the flavors that they smell to an organ in their mouth.
Lizards are cold blooded. They like to bask in the sun.
Lizards can be born in two different ways. Most lizards lay eggs. The lizard eggs are soft and pliant like leather. Other lizards are born live.
