Exotic Pets. Lizards.

Lizards ( Lacertilia ) — suborder of squamates order of the class reptiles. The suborder of lizards is not biologically definable category, and includes all those species that do not belong to the other two suborders scaly — snakes and duchodcu. Snakes are probably descendents of lizards paranoidly and biological principles can too be considered a lizard, but conditionally allocated in a separate suborder. There are more than 4300 species of lizards.

Unlike snakes, most lizards (except for some legless forms) are available in varying degrees developed limbs. Although legless lizards are similar in appearance to snakes, they would still have the belly, but the majority are belt extremities; unlike snakes left and right half of the jaw apparatus still adherent.
