Lizards of Wisconsin
Lizards in Wisconsin? Yep. When most of us think about lizards and where they live, Wisconsin probably doesn't come to mind. Most people think of lizards in dry, hot places like in the southwestern United States. But, Wisconsin does have lizards--four species to be exact. Compare this to Arizona with 47 species.
Wisconsin's lizards are dependent on sandy soils. Sandy soil habitats tend to be warmer and drier than other soils. These areas where the temperature is slightly warmer allows lizards to survive this far north. You've probably never seen one of these critters. They're fast and pretty secretive. But, you never know when you might come across one, so its best to learn a little something about them and see what they look like. Read on for the "lowdown on lizards."
