A flying dragon lizard avoids danger by opening two large, winglike flaps of skin and gliding from tree to tree. The lizard steers and brakes with its tail. The large flaps are supported by elongated ribs which they can expand and retract. The wings are brightly colored and for this reason they are also called the "butterfly lizard".

Eastern Bluetongue (Tiliqua scincoides scincoides) / With their distinctively coloured tongues and a quiet nature, these lizards are a common sight in many Australian backyards, and can reach 60cm in length. They are slow moving and are not aggressive. When threatened these lizards will open their large mouths and stick out their broad bright blue tongue which contrasts against the pink of the mouth.

Tuatara - Source: Tad Arensmeier. The tuatara has virtually remained the same for over 140 million years. The tuatara is a reptile, but not in the lizard family, it is part of the family Rhynchocephalia (which translates to Beakheads) which appeared over 220 million years ago. All the Beakheads, besides the tuatara - 2 species, became extinct about 60 million years ago. They are very rare, nocturnal animals. Family: Sphenodontidae

Basilisks are great runners. When in danger, these lizards start running upright on their back legs. They can even run fast enough to walk, or run really, on water. This has caused them to be referred to as the "Jesus Christ Lizard".
