The peculiar lizard captured hearts with its appearance which looks like a small dragon from a fairy tale
The lizard is one of the astonishing species living on the earth. Its distinctiveness is connected with a differing nature. Currently they are on the point of vanishing. It lives in Africa mostly in the stony and dry places. Its appearance is rather terrifying and has an unusual defense.
So they can look at the same time sweet and also uncommon. Comparing with reptiles, the last have keen stripes spread around their body and when being afraid they arrange themselves like armadillos do. So it is not the only feature that should be mentioned. An important thing about them is that they hide in the narrow openings of the rock. They are also fond of sunbathing. And they don’t go on their progeny by oviparity. They have also different kind of colors from brown up to yellow.
You can also recognize them easily with their appearance as the tail and abdomen are not covered with thorns. That is why they curl up to defend those parts of the body. It can leave at that point about an hour. It is easy to catch them and they defend themselves from snakes, birds. They can also kept at home as they do not demand unique care.
