My Top 10 Favourite Reptiles


10-  Jesus Christ lizard (Basiliscus vittatus) -
 Its my favorite lizard because it can run on water and can burrow down in the sand  to hide from predators!!!!






9- Frill-necked lizard (Chlamydosaurus kingil) -
this lizard is quiet a vicious animal when fretted, it is well know by its breathtaking defense mechanism .








8- Flying dragon - (Draco volans)-
 This type of lizard can glide tree to tree, it eats arboreal ants, this amazing lizard can lay up to 1-5 eggs only. They don't glide when its raining or when its windy.





7- Flying snake- (Chrysopelea ornata)-
This snake is not venomous, it eats lizards, frogs and bats. It lives in India, Sir Lanka.







6- ( Brookesia micra)-
This chameleon can grow up to 29mm it is small enough to stand on the head of a match!!! they climb up into the tree branches at night to sleep in Madagascar. 





5- Thorny devil- (Moloch horridus)-
This marvelous lizard can live up to 20 years. The Thorny dragon also features a fake head on the back of its neck, and the lizard presents this to potential predators by dipping its head.






4-  Mexican mole lizard-(Bipes biporus)-
This strange looking lizard lives underground for most of its life and is usually found  in sandy areas.

  



3- Satanic leaf tailed gecko- (Uroplatus phantasticus)- 
This astounding  gecko mimics  the appearance of a dead leaf. From their perfectly shaped tale to their amazing colors, veins and texture, when these guys are on a leaf they are very hard to spot.





2-  Red eyed crocodile skink - (Tribolonotus graciilis)-  This lizard is one of the few types of lizards that can vocalize. The males will fight for females.







1- Pinocchio lizard- ( Anolis proboscis)-
This lizard was thought to be extinct for the past 40 years. They're apparently meant to be very slow lizards, no one knows the use of there long nose at this point. The female Pinocchio lizards do not have a big nose.
