Drew brought in a lizard he found at his house and shared it with the class yesterday. We had a blast learning about "him"! We researched on the Missouri conservation website and found out that Lizzie is a Northern Fence Lizard.
We know that Lizzie is a boy because during mating season the bellies of the males turn a black and blue color.
We enjoyed having Lizzie in our room and learning about the foods he likes to eat and why he needs to stay warm. We asked Drew what he was going to do with Lizzie and he said, "I am going to let him go when I get home." This is a great idea because we found out that he would not make a good pet and might die if we kept him.
Thank-you so much for sharing Lizzie with us!
