See also: Lizard (homonymy)
The lizards are Reptile S about the Squamates. They share the fact of having four legs (even if certain species secondarily became Apode S (ex: slow worms) or Biped S (ex: Amphisbenes of the kind Bipes ), the ears with apparent Tympanum (without external canal auditory), of the mobile eyelids (except Geckonidés and Xantusidae which lost their eyelids), the body covered with scale S and the moults. All the species do not lose their tail (autotomy) in the event of aggression.
The lizard term probably derives from Latin lacertus who designates a particular family today. Various species can have a vernacular Nom which contains the lizard term like Geckos green Lizard of Manapany or the green Lizard. However this term is also a generic term which traditionally more particularly gathers of the species of the infra-order the Autarchoglossa present in Europe but also the Gecko S, the chameleons, the Iguane S. Among the species Autarchoglossa , certain species, at first sight, are not regarded as lizards because they do not have legs, for example the Orvet S, snakes of glass and the ophisaures.
