Lenny the Lizard
Lenny is very cunning. He is always getting in trouble,
but also able to talk his way out!
- Social interaction varies between lizards, with many species defending set territories. Some live in large colonies, while others lead a solitary existence.
- Many lizards, such as iguanas, can see in color. Their colorful body parts allow them to communicate with each other and help them tell which are male and which are female.
- Lizards smell stuff with their tongues! Just like snakes, a lizard sticks out its tongue to catch scent particles in the air and then pulls back its tongue and places those particles on the roof of its mouth, where there are special sensory cells. The lizard can use these scent “clues” to find food or a mate or to detect enemies.
