Live Reptile Sales Policy: We at Menagerie care about our animals. Before we can send a reptile or amphibian to it's forever home, we require potential owners to have an over-the-phone conversation with one of our reptile experts. It's our responsibility to ensure that customers fully understand the required care, maintenance, diet, and habitat for each individual animal. We look forward to your call. 416-972-6488
Long-tailed lizards are so named because their tails can easily grow to be four times the length of their bodies. These lizards are native to southeast Asia, China, and southern Russia, occupying open, overgrown, damp grasslands at the edges of forests. They use their long tails for balance and weight distribution while moving swiftly, or “swimming,” across the tops of the tall grasses. Long-tailed lizards move fast and are extremely agile, but like all reptiles, they enjoy a good long bask in the sun.
