Snakes and Lizards: Squamata
Physical Characteristics, Habitat, Diet, Behavior And Reproduction, Conservation StatusGEOGRAPHIC RANGE, SQUAMATES AND PEOPLE
Besides the Arctic, Antarctic, and other very cold places, squamates live almost the world over.
For the most part, squamates either freeze or flee when humans approach. If a person comes too close, however, many will bite. Fortunately, most species are not venomous, and the bite only serves to surprise the person rather than hurt him or her. Some snakes, and two species of lizards, are venomous. The lizards are the Gila monster and the Mexican beaded lizard. Usually, quick medical attention can treat squamate bites.
