Green Garden Lizard

Lizards Home > Library > In The Wild
 

The Green Garden Lizard (Calotes calotes) is native to Sri Lanka, the Western Ghats and has now been introduced successfully into regions of southeast Asia, like Singapore and China.

Green Garden Lizards can actually change their colour to reflect their moods, but not as well as Chameleons. The transition from colour to colour is actually quite quick as well. As their name specifies, the Green Garden Lizard's main colour is green, but they can also be a light brown or grey as well.

Green Garden Lizards have seperately moveable eyes to watch out for predators and food at all times. Unlike most lizards, their tails do not break off either. These lizards eat mostly insects, but do tend to eat small mammals and lizards as well. When the Green Garden Lizard catches it's prey, it shakes it around to stun it. The food is then eaten whole, and not torn apart.
