Long-Tailed Lizard (Takydromus sexlineatus)

Origin: Southeast Asia
Sighted at: PetsMart, Austin, TX

It’s a been a long while, but I was at PetsMart today and spotted a type of lizard I’d never seen before! Pet or not, that’s as good a sighting as I need.

The long-tailed lizard, as it’s aptly named, is an Asian arboreal lizard known for its ridiculously long tail, which will grow back if they lose it to a predator while they’re making a quick getaway!
