👉Some lizards have adapted to escape predators by detaching their tail. The tail will keep moving and distracts the predators while the lizard escapes. It takes a long time but eventually the tail will grow back.
🦎Lizards don’t hibernate in the winter but go through a process called “brumation”. This is when they slow down during cold temperatures. They eat less and don’t move around very much at all, though, they still need to drink water. It’s different from hibernation because the lizard is not really sleeping.
👉Some lizards don’t have legs!! (see picture)
🦎The biggest difference between snakes and legless lizards is that legless lizards possess earholes while snakes do not. Also, the legless lizard does not have a forked tongue like snakes do.
