REPTILIAN TUESDAY #43
We’re taking a hike in Southern Europe to find a lizard that looks like a snake! Yep folks, we’ve heard that there are lizards in the world that don’t have legs! Are you ready to go exploring?
MEET THE EUROPEAN GLASS LIZARD!
Diet: Carnivore: slugs, snails, invertebrates
Length: 3 ¼-4ft
Conservation Status: common
- European glass lizards are legless lizards.
- They are grey as juveniles and brown as adults.
- European glass lizards have movable eyelids.
- They are diurnal (active during the day).
- European glass lizards don’t just realize their tails, they shatter it. The tail falls off in pieces in order to fool their predators.
These cool lizards think they’re fooling everyone looking like a snake! They’re not fooling this elephant and horse though! How about you?
