ANIMAL FACTS - Lizards

As juveniles Perenties are insectivores, but as they grow into adults they become carnivorous.

Crikey - More Animal Facts!

There are over 3000 lizard species distributed throughout the world, and because they are reptiles the majority are found in warmer climates. They range in sizes from 6cm up to 3m long! Lizards have scaly skin that is shed throughout the year, often in irregular patches.

Some members of the lizard family are carnivorous (meat only), however there are others that are herbivorous (plants only) or omnivorous (plants and meat).
