 Lizard Body:

 * The sizes of the fog range from medium to large, as the length of the adult's body ranges between 25-30 cm, and the lizard is characterized by a strong, compact body, a broad head, and a thick tail equipped with many spines extending along its length in the form of horizontal lines, and it is worth noting that it is possible to distinguish between a female  And the lizard mentioned several differences, as the females are distinguished by a smaller size than the males, in addition to their colors, and the marks on their body are less brilliant and clear compared to what the male has, and the body of the lizard appears in a light beige color, while the body of the male appears in a bright yellow color, as well.  Both of them have black spots on the back.

 Breeding lizard:

 * The fog reproduces with eggs, as the female lizard lays between 5-40 eggs after nearly a month of mating, this number varies according to the type and age of the lizard, and after about 70-80 days of laying the eggs the incubation period ends, and the eggs hatch to produce  From the young lizard, as the weight of one of them when coming out of the egg is approximately 4-6 g, and its length at that time is about 5 cm, and this length gradually increases until the fog reaches 7-9 years of its life, and during this period it reaches its final length, and it is worth  It should be noted that the little leopard gains more weight with its rapid growth during the first few weeks

 Blowing adaptation:

 * Fogs show physical, physical and behavioral adaptations that help them live in their environment and defend themselves, especially if they are exposed to the threat of attack, either by hiding by entering their nearby burrows, or through camouflage, as thanks to their body color they can merge with rocks  In addition to this, the fog uses its strong muscular tail to protect itself from predators, as the fog is able to attack it, and terrorize it by waving and striking the tail violently from one side to the other. The lizard is a diurnal animal that loves isolation, it does not meet  With its species, except during the mating period, and one of the most important behavioral characteristics that help it regulate its body temperature to remain between about 36-39 degrees Celsius: it extends it under the sun to obtain the appropriate warm temperature, and its resort to cold shady areas when the temperature rises significantly  At noon, or hiding in its burrows in times of cold, or very hot, as the lizard builds underground burrows, each of which reaches a length of about 3 meters, which provides him with a place that enjoys a more stable temperature than the outside environment, and a house  It is a safe place where the lizard spends the night, while being careful to keep its spiny tail facing the entrance to protect it from enemies.

 Litter Food:

 * Fog is one of the herbivores that depend mainly on plants for their food, and the rare herbs that are available in their desert environment, such as cacti, and others, as lizard gets from these plants the amount it needs from water, and it is worth noting that providing it with a container in which a lot of water  It may lead to higher humidity than its normal level, which causes disease to it, and it is rare for fog to resort to eating insects, as eating an adult lizard eating meals rich in protein may cause harm to him, unlike a small child who needs to eat specific amounts of protein during  Its growth period.

 Lizard breeding:

 * There are many things that must be taken into account before making a decision to raise lizards at home, and the most important of them is to stay away from hunting fox from the wild, and importing them from their original habitat, in order to limit trade in them, as it is preferable that the selected lizard be from the species that have been previously bred, which is why  It guarantees its health and ease of handling, as it is accustomed to living in a cage, and in addition to that, it prefers to place the lizard in a glass basin with a ground covered with dirt known as a terrarium, and the basin may be large in size, which provides varying temperatures to suit the need of the lizard.  It often needs to feel warm, then move to a moderate temperature environment, in order to maintain the thermal balance, and the basin with its sufficient areas provides shelter and a suitable place in which the lizard practices its usual behaviors, such as lying down, hiding, climbing, eating, and digging.

 * The diet of lettuce that is raised at home consists of a group of plants: such as lentils, pumpkins, edible flowers, and some leafy vegetables that are served on a daily basis, such as lettuce, in addition to herbs, and hay that must be supplied with them regularly because they contain fiber, apart from some varieties.  Which is served in moderation, and cautiously, such as: Zucchini, and lizard can be fed from seeds intended for birds once a week or every two months, and it is worth noting that it is necessary to provide vitamin and calcium supplements to him from time to time.
