Lizards are a group of four-legged scaly reptiles that are very widespread in the world. Scientifically, this large group is known as the suborder or children of the Lacertilia nation which is a member of the scaly reptiles along with snakes. Lizards are generally small, dense, smooth and shiny scales, and live on the ground. Lizards generally have four legs, external ear canals, and eyelids that can be opened and closed. However, there are also types that do not have some of these characteristics.
Lizards are the most successful reptiles to develop and can be found in all habitats: forests, deserts, grasslands, gardens, rice fields, swamps, even in settlements and cities, wherever as long as lizards can find their favorite food. Lizards can also live in cool areas such as mountains. However, as cold-blooded animals, lizards cannot survive too long in low temperatures and require sunlight as a source of energy for their activities.

Habitat and Reproduction of Lizard
Lizards are the most successful reptiles to develop and can be found in all habitats: forests, deserts, grasslands, gardens, rice fields, swamps, even in settlements and cities, wherever as long as lizards can find their favorite food. Lizards can also live in cool areas such as mountains. However, as cold-blooded (poikilothermic) animals, lizards cannot survive too long in low temperatures and require sunlight as a source of energy for their activities.
Most lizards reproduce by laying eggs. Lizard eggs consist of an outer layer in the form of a soft waterproof shell (usually white), then there is an inner wall in the form of a membrane, as well as a yolk-white substance, which will turn into new lizard individuals when incubated. The sex of the lizards that will hatch is greatly influenced by the temperature of the surrounding air. If the air temperature is high, the eggs will contain male lizards, whereas if the opposite (low air temperature) will produce female lizards. However, the exact temperature limit will produce a male or female, until recently still debated.
Some types of lizards, about 20% of species, reproduce by giving birth. Usually, when giving birth, the part of the body that comes out first is the tail. The sex of a baby lizard born is influenced by the temperature in which it will be born. As with lizards laying eggs, high temperatures will produce more males and low temperatures will produce more females. Some types of lizards can even reproduce without mating at all.

Habit and Food of Lizard
Most lizards are active during the day and some are active at night. Most lizards need sunlight to warm their bodies before moving. Usually, lizards communicate with each other using certain cues such as moving certain body parts such as tails, sticking out their tongues, changing skin color or moving their bodies up and down. After that, in certain circumstances, male lizards often fight for territory or female lizards, such as biting or scratching each other, until one relents and leaves.
Lizards are omnivorous reptiles. The diet of lizards includes insects such as mosquitoes, grasshoppers, or larvae, worms, amphibians, and even eats the same type of lizard. Some groups of lizards also like carrion, even large lizards such as Komodo dragons also prey on other large animals, such as poultry, deer or wild boar.
