Apartment Listing  

The normal skeletal systems of a lizard consist of a fossilized skull. The ribs of a lizard are connected ventrally to a cartilaginous sternum, which is never found in other reptiles such as the snake. The teeth of a lizard are either acrodont or pleurodont. These teeth are irreplaceable.

Most of the lizards are four legged and five toed. The regeneration of tail is not uncommon as it is a natural phenomenon in other species such as Gekkonidae also. The upper skeletal system of a lizard constitutes of skull, scapula, humerus, ulna and radius. Whereas, the lower part comprises of femur, fibula, pelvis and tibia.

The skeletal system of a blue tongue lizard is comparatively much closer to other lizards. However, it has 70 bones overall. The bones are very delicate, especially the one in the tail. Though the teeth are small, they are usually very sharp and could even harm considerably. 

Apart from the bones mentioned above, ribs are considered to be very vital for the movement of a lizard and to keep it fit on an overall count. The most vital parts of a blue lizard's upper skeletal system are jaws and skull. Legs, ribs and tail sections support aptly the living standards of a lizard. The bones are very fragile, and they could even snap like a twig in most wanted situation. The teeth are small and sharp so there is a possibility of getting hurt while handling. So, one has to be much careful while handling this pet lizard.
