Garden Lizard

These are the common visitors in a garden. I admire the way the blend themselves into their background. These garden lizards eat the insects, slugs, snails, caterpillars and small bugs  in our garden.  These also eat a small quantity of leaves flowers fruits and vegetables.

They come in various colors and sizes. I like this one in particular for the orange  under throat. These are not poisonous. They hide under rocks and blend with their environment. Their scaly skin helps them to blend. They do not change colors like the chameleon.

They lay eggs  to reproduce.  These critters have a life span of 1-30 years. They usually do not grow very big. the males reach about 8 inches in length. These are harmless creatures and we do not have to fear them in the garden.

  1. I like anything that eats garden pests. We don’t have many lizards in Auckland, although New Zealand has Geckos but don’t know where they live.
    We do have small tiny brown skinks and these are lovely. The cats sometimes get the unfortunately

  2. due to the rules where we live, we do not have a garden. But I remember when we lived in Thailand, there were lizards all over our porch. We lived on the 4th floor of the building, and the lizards climbed up, and caught bugs!
