The Reptiles: Lizards

NATURE’s The Reptiles: Lizards explores the world of the great escape artists of the wild, and looks at their remarkable bag of tricks.

The Reptiles series concludes with the most extraordinarily diverse of all reptiles. Lizards can be found on mountain tops, in the oceans, and in deserts and forests. Viewers meet some of nature’s most spectacular and beautiful varieties, ranging from giants more than ten feet long to tiny creatures no larger than a child’s finger. Lizards bite, lose their tails, have tongues longer than their entire body, and some can even walk on water.

The show travels across the globe to feature some of the most fascinating varieties of lizards, including Indonesia, for a look at the deadly Komodo dragon. The program also looks at people who form strong attachments to the animals, such as Henry Lizardlover, who changed his name to express his feelings for the reptiles. Henry sells photographs of his many lizards posed in a variety of humorous settings.

    i was watching an episode where rom did a culture of his own mouth….my comment to rom is you should not have e coli in your mouth…it is an intestinal bacteria…and yes can live on reptiles, however for a humans to have ecoli in their mouth is gross and how did it get there?

I’m just so happy you guys made this websute because without this I would have a bad grade and something not that interesting to write about and I love writing stuff thats interesting. Cause if you don’t have something thats interesting then all my friends would ask me if there was something more interesting. But know I have something to brag about anad its gonna be this. But THANK YOU

    Unquestionably imagine that that you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the internet the easiest thing to remember of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed even as other people consider issues that they just don’t recognise about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and defined out the entire thing with no need side-effects , folks could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
