The Asian grass lizard, six-striped long-tailed lizard, or long-tailed grass lizard
this is the lizard with the super long tail!
The tail length is usually over three times the body (snout to vent) length in this species.and much like geckos they can drop their tail when they feel threatened.
they typically live in countries such as India, China, Burma, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysian Peninsula, and Indonesia.
The Long Tailed grass lizard is easily recognized by the long tail. It has a white to cream coloured underbelly with a brown or beige back, often adorned with brown stripes of different shades.
they typically eat small insects such as flies, In captivity they can be reared on crickets
These are entirely diurnal lizards that emerge in the early morning to bask in the sun. If a potential predator approaches they will first remain completely still, and then if the danger persists, they will flee to the safety of foliage.
they also have communicate with each other through various waves…how cute
In Venice, Italy, a lizard eats a pastry discarded in the street.
TheEastern Water Dragon (Physignathus lesueurii lesueurii), which is a subspecies of Australian Waterdragon. An arboreal agamid species native to Eastern Australia, Eastern Water Dragons grow to around 80-90cm (up to 3ft) in length including their long tail.
These semi-aquatic lizards are found around creeks, rivers or lakes. They are good tree climbers and like to laze on branches overhanging the water. If disturbed they will drop into the water and swim to the bottom to wait for the danger to pass, able to stay underwater for up to 30 minutes if necessary. They then rise to the surface to check the area for danger before returning to land.
As this species is active during both the day and night they hunt for insects, frogs and water insects, as well as eating fruit and berries. Eastern Water Dragons are active all year, but in the cooler parts of their range, they will experience a dormancy period. They may then dig a small hole under a log or rock, seal the entrance wait for the warmer months.
