Meet Larry. He’s our European Legless Lizard.
Legless lizards may look like snakes, but they are true lizards. Unlike snakes, they have movable eyelids, several rows of belly scales, and the ability to break off their tail when they are in danger. Although many members of this family lack limbs, this is not a characteristic of every species. While the family contains both limbless and limbed lizards, the skull, teeth, and tongue of these species are anatomically similar.Share
