The Lizard is a reptile with over 6,000 different species that is closely related to snakes; some lizards are even more closely related to snakes than to other lizards. Most lizards have four legs, eyelids that they can blink, smooth scales, exposed ear holes, and tongues that can smell. Lizards are primarily carnivorous animals, although some are vegetarian, that sit and wait for their prey, as opposed to actively hunting. Lizards are found on every continent, except for Antarctica. For defense and offense, lizards may be venomous, capable of camouflage, and able to lose and regrow their tails. Lizard’s scales do not grow with them, and the creatures will molt and shed their scales in order to grow.
