Researchers at Arizona State University have taken a giant step towards uncovering the genetic secrets behind lizards’ ability to regrow their own tails, and believe the knowledge could be used to stimulate regrowth in humans.
Unique research by UC Riverside biologists on wild anole lizards reveals new insights on how animals might adapt to their habitat and handle various forms of motion
The green anole lizard is the first non-bird species of reptile to have its genome sequenced and assembled.
If you've ever tried capturing a lizard, you'll know how difficult it is.
