Lizards are a group of reptiles that belong to the order Squamata. There are over 6,000 species of lizards, making them one of the most diverse groups of reptiles in the world. Lizards can be found on every continent except Antarctica and are adapted to a wide range of environments, including deserts, forests, grasslands, and wetlands. Lizards are ectothermic, meaning they rely on external sources of heat to regulate their body temperature. They have scales on their skin and most species have the ability to regenerate their tails if they are lost. Lizards are also known for their ability to run quickly and to climb trees and other vertical surfaces. Lizards are carnivorous and feed on a variety of prey, including insects, spiders, and other small animals. Some species are also herbivorous and feed on plants. Lizards are important members of many ecosystems and play a variety of roles, including controlling pest populations and serving as food for other animals.
