About Lizards

Lizards are a widespread group of squamate reptiles, with over 6,000 species ranging across all continents except Antarctica, as well as most oceanic island chains.

Lizards look very similar to salamanders but they differ from each other in many ways such as their dry scaly skin and clawed feet and external ear openings.

The majority of lizards are quite small have 4 legs and have a fragile tail that can regenerate when part of it is taken off. Lizards are cold-blooded or ectoderms, which means that they depend on sources outside their bodies like the sun, to raise and maintain their body temperatures.

Lizards are often seen inside or outside our house. Most lizards are carnivorous, they eat insects, termites, ants, etc. It is an oviparous animal that lays eggs.

Colouring a Lizard

After the drawing of a cute lizard is completed we move forward with coloring the lizard. For coloring, we had chosen some basic colours. As lizards are green and some are brown in colour, we fill green colour while colouring it. And fill the eye with the yellow colour. You can fill color according to our wish too.

Alternatively, you can fill this lizard kinda brown or light brown too.

Colour Details:

  • Yellow
  • Green
