  • reptiles
  • While most monitor lizards are carnivorous , eating eggs, smaller reptiles, fish, birds and small mammals, some also eat fruit and vegetation, depending on where they live. (wikipedia.org)
  • The general consensus is that monitor lizards have the highest standard metabolic rates of all extant reptiles. (wikipedia.org)
  • Whereas most reptiles are considered to have three chambered hearts, the hearts of monitor lizards - as with those of boas and pythons - have a well developed ventricular septum that completely separates the pulmonary and systemic sides of the circulatory system during systole . (wikipedia.org)
  • monitor lizards
  • Monitor lizards have long necks, powerful tails and claws, and well-developed limbs. (wikipedia.org)
  • A large concentration of monitor lizards occurs on Tioman Island and the Perhentian Islands in the Malaysian state of Pahang . (wikipedia.org)
  • Monitor lizards maintain large territories and employ active pursuit hunting techniques that are reminiscent of similar sized mammals. (wikipedia.org)
  • The active nature of monitor lizards has led to numerous studies on the metabolic capacities of these lizards. (wikipedia.org)
  • Monitor lizards have a high aerobic scope that is afforded, in part, by their heart anatomy. (wikipedia.org)
  • This allows monitor lizards to create mammalian-equivalent pressure differentials between the pulmonary and systemic circuits, which in turn ensures that oxygenated blood is quickly distributed to the body without also flooding the lungs with high pressure blood. (wikipedia.org)
  • Some monitor lizards, including the Komodo dragon , are capable of parthenogenesis . (wikipedia.org)
  • Monitor lizards probably expanded their geographic range into Africa between 49 and 33 million years ago, possibly via Iran, and to Australia and the Indonesian archipelago between 39 and 26 million years ago. (wikipedia.org)
  • During the late Cretaceous era, monitor lizards or their close relatives are believed to have evolved into amphibious and then fully marine forms, the mosasaurs , which reached lengths of up to 17 m (56 ft). (wikipedia.org)
  • embryonic
  • We discovered that they turn on at least 326 genes in specific regions of the regenerating tail, including genes involved in embryonic development, response to hormonal signals and wound healing. (newswise.com)
  • This work is concerned with the adult, and, so far as we are aware, no comparable studies on young and embryonic lizards have been made. (biologists.org)
  • defense
  • This defense mechanism, termed "caudal autonomy," happens when a lizard is grabbed by the tail or feels threatened, says Lisa Abbo, DVM, MS, at Woods Hole Science Aquarium and the Capron Park Zoo in Massachusetts. (petmd.com)
  • This defense is often a last resort, after the lizard has used other less-costly attempts at escape. (petmd.com)
  • predatory
  • Curtin University's Dr Bill Bateman and Murdoch University's A/Professor Trish Fleming say their findings support the hypothesis that while increasing the frequency of attack, brightly-coloured tails divert predatory attention away from the head and body, ultimately increasing a lizard's chance of survival. (kingsnake.com)
  • lizard's ability
  • U.S. ecologists say they've identified the main factor that determines a lizard's ability to shed its tail when predators attack: viper venom. (redorbit.com)
  • Losing the tail does not seriously harm the lizard, and may save its life, but the loss of a tail might have a negative effect on the lizard's ability to run quickly, its attractiveness to the opposite sex, and its social standing. (californiaherps.com)
  • humans
  • Although it doesn't have the function of the original, Tail 2.0 is nonetheless the result of genetic skills humans would like to learn more about-especially if scientists could one day be able to use them to treat spinal cord injuries and diseases like arthritis. (slate.com)
  • Lizards basically share the same toolbox of genes as humans," said lead author Kenro Kusumi, professor in ASU's School of Life Sciences and associate dean in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. (newswise.com)
  • Lizards are the most closely-related animals to humans that can regenerate entire appendages. (newswise.com)
  • Just like in mice and humans, lizards have satellite cells that can grow and develop into skeletal muscle and other tissues. (newswise.com)
  • frog
  • Other animals, such as salamanders, frog tadpoles and fish, can also regenerate their tails, with growth mostly at the tip. (newswise.com)
  • often
  • They are often mistakenly sold as Armadillo lizards (Cordylus cataphractus) in many pet stores, so do your research before purchasing to make sure that you are getting the lizard you want. (drsfostersmith.com)
  • however
  • The tail that grows back, however, is composed of a rod made of cartilage and long muscle fibers that stretch the length of the regrown appendage, not the original design of small bones and short muscles. (slate.com)
  • Typically, the Indian Spiny Tailed Lizard is an yellowish-brown or olive colour, however, during the colder seasons they will become much darker. (wild-facts.com)
  • However, remember that any major weight loss, diarrhea or loss of appetite can lead to stick tail disease. (petmd.com)
  • However, lizards have a unique pattern of tissue growth that is distributed throughout the tail. (newswise.com)
  • However, we cannot relate the cluster formation to the crowding of neighbouring lizards nor to individuals' body size. (brillonline.com)
  • creature
  • In this short video, the detached tail of a Southern California Legless Lizard wriggles rapidly, looking like a living creature, until it gradually slows down. (californiaherps.com)
  • common
  • A common Arizona lizard in the southwestern portions of the Arizona Sonoran Desert especially on rocky bajadas and high wash banks. (arizonensis.org)
  • cartilage
  • The tail skeleton is replaced by a rod of cartilage with new muscles growing along it, producing a replacement tail that is usually shorter and less coloured compared with the original. (australiangeographic.com.au)
  • mechanism
  • For lizards, losing the tail is an evolved mechanism that allows them to escape predators or to avoid aggressive intraspecific agonistic interactions. (brillonline.com)
  • generally
  • Lizard's Tail (generally called water-legendary brute) is a rhizomatous, deciduous, negligible maritime. (tnnursery.net)
  • Generally speaking, it is an accumulation of signs seen in lizards, and left untreated, leads to a wasted body condition. (petmd.com)
  • grows
  • I put the writhing tail on the ground where it danced around for about 4 minutes until it stopped, shooting some video of it, then set it back next to the lizard to get these photos.The lizard was then put back under his log unharmed, but unable now to use a detached tail as a decoy until it grows another one. (californiaherps.com)
  • thick
  • Its tail was neatly severed and thick black and red liquid had congealed over the open wound. (daijiworld.com)
  • small
  • Small, white flowers grow in a spike with a drooping tip (the lizard's tail). (britannica.com)
  • The flowering structure consists of a spike of many small whitish flowers that forms an arching, tail-like shape. (tamu.edu)
  • fall
  • Create numerous hiding spots throughout the temperature gradient using stacked rocks, logs, and other materials, making sure they are arranged securely in such a way that they cannot fall onto the lizards. (drsfostersmith.com)
  • The pulling apart of the muscles causes the tail to fall off along the line of weakness. (australiangeographic.com.au)

  • Lizard's tail is a perennial plant that has a hairy erect stem with few or no branches and can grow up to 4 feet tall. (tamu.edu)
  • loss
  • Additionally, bacterial infection caused by Salmonella can cause similar signs of weight loss leading to stick tail. (petmd.com)
  • Lizards don't need to mourn the loss of their tails," said Wissman, so there's no benefit to your pet by keeping it. (petmd.com)
  • We felt terrible to be responsible for the loss of such a nice unbroken tail. (californiaherps.com)
  • We evaluated the spatial relation of tail loss in a population of the lizard Tropidurus montanus . (brillonline.com)
