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.
