All About Lizards
Lizards can be found on every continent except Antarctica. There are over 6000 different species of lizards, ranging in size from a few inches to several feet long. Lizards can be found in a variety of habitats, from deserts and rainforests to mountains and even urban areas.
Lizards are interesting creatures and each one has its own unique features. Some lizards can change color, some can detach their tails, and some can even run on water!
