Basking Lizards - The best for pet lizards - Articles - Want a lizard? - Choosing a pet lizard (2577 words)
Herbivorous and omnivorous lizards need fresh leafy greens and vegetables in their diet, which means that you need to prepare your lizard's food several times a week; this can take up to an hour, depending on the size of the lizard and consequently, the amount of food you need to prepare.
Diurnal lizards also tend to eat in the late morning to early afternoon, once their bodies have had a chance to warm up, which is when their appetite gets stimulated.
Feeding the lizard early in the morning means that the food sits there for several hours before the lizard is ready to eat, so the only other option if you work all day is to be able to feed the lizard when you get home, preferably before 6 p.m.
EEK! - Critter Corner - Slender Glass Lizard (454 words)
The name for this lizard is appropriate, for when it is caught, this reptile twists and jumps frantically to escape, and sometimes, its tail breaks off, like glass, into many pieces.
Because of its snake-like appearance, this lizard is often mistaken for a snake.
The slender glass lizard's body can be tan, brown, or bronze with a dark brown to fl stripe running along the middle of the back from head to tail.
