Lizards are a widespread group of squamate reptiles, with over 6,000 species ranging across all continents except Antarctica. How cool is that? But lizards are also popular characters in cartoon movies. With that being said, here is the list of Lizard Cartoon Characters in real life.
The first to make it on this list is one of the cutest, if not the cutest, Disney lizard characters. Rapunzel’s most faithful friend, Pascal, is a little chameleon that sticks around and helps Rapunzel in all her adventures. A lot of people think chameleons change their color based on their surroundings – sort of like camouflage. However, this isn’t true. Chameleons actually change their colour due to several different factors, including their mood, changes in light or temperature, or the humidity of their environment.
Different chameleons will also have different colors. For instance, more dominant, attractive males will have brighter colors, and submissive males may be darker browns and greys. Women will change their colors based on whether they want to accept or reject a suitor.
2. MONITOR LIZARDS
The next character is a secondary antagonist. Her name is Joanna, a pet monitor lizard. She might seem foolish, but she’s smarter than she looks, evil, and even scary at times. She loves playing with eggs and doesn’t miss a chance to mess around with Miss McLeach changing her eggs’ order.
Monitor lizards are giant reptiles that belong to the genus Varanus. 78 species of monitor lizard can lizard that can be found in Africa, Asia, and Oceania. Monitor lizards inhabit jungles, coastal forests, and areas close to the rivers. In some parts of the world, monitor lizards are kept as house pets; they are not recommended for inexperienced owners because of their aggressive nature. Even though monitor lizards are not on the list of endangered species, their future is uncertain due to uncontrolled killing, the pet trade, and habitat loss.
3. KOMODO DRAGONS
Bill, the lizard from Alice in Wonderland, is the next character we are adding to this list. This little green animal shows its bravery during the movie when asked to get rid of a monster that Alice all grew up in.
Since lizards are cold-blooded creatures, their body temperature is susceptible to change quickly depending on the environment and surrounding temperature. Without sunshine, lizards are not able to survive for very long. This explains why there are no lizards in Antarctica among the most extreme cold temperatures and why they live mainly among deserts and southern countries. However, lizards aren’t able to withstand the sun when it reaches its peak. So even in the desert, they will find shade during the hottest parts of the day.
4. FRILLED LIZARD
Frank from The Rescuers Down Under is the last character we’ll be talking about in this list. He is a small frilled lizard that is thrown in a cage during the movie. His worst fear is to be killed and turned into a purse, pretty much any lizard’s fear if they knew what happens to them after dying.
A frilled lizard is one of the prettiest of its species. Its colors are astonishing! It has a vivid yellow mouth and a large extendible frill gathered about the neck and under the throat. The combination of the gaping mouth and the wide, brightly coloured frill provide an intimidating sight to any potential predator. It frequently runs at speed on two legs to escape danger, quickly climbing the nearest tree to safety. Their colour can be brown or grey with the frill being lighter and often tinged with orange or reddish-brown. Males are bigger than females and have a more robust appearance. There are two long, pointed canine-like teeth present in the lower jaw, which can inflict a painful bite.
