Forked-tail Lizard

Today I took this unusual photo of a Side-blotched Lizard with a forked-tail.  I didn’t know such a thing was possible, but on further research I found out how it happens. A lizard that loses its tail has the ability to grow back another tail, and it has been documented that it can result in growing two tails or in other words a forked-tail. I learn something new every day!


  1. wow, that is a rare sight in the wild I imagine!

  2. Rare it may be but I've just found a forked tail blue tongue or pink tongue in my pool pump and filter box, a spot they all seem to love for the warmth it provides when the pump is running. A search for fork tailed lizard led me to The Rambler's post which confirmed my suspicions, so thanks!

  3. people may possibly say ideology is lifeless and we live inside a post-ideological globe, the
    issue with which is this sort? of pondering is it's self a kind of ideology. so to acquire to your stage (nicely, to truly deal with your point would consider a lot of hrs and in the end have to consist of way greater than just my viewpoint), the issue is that the ideology that developed the training method still exists and is being extensively bought into. it really is as much as us to cease acquiring in to the techniques and ideologies that create the issues.
