      There are (almost) no snakes in the wild in Hawaii except for the tiny Island Blind Snake.

      There have been a few Brown tree snakes found, but they're non-native.

      The state gov't works hard to keep snakes out because the birds there have no natural defenses against them.

      Some skinks - a type of lizard - drop their tail when you touch it

      I'm not sure if it grows back roll

      That's true - but they only taste like chicken after they've crossed a road

      Is your female producing fertile eggs?

      It's not uncommon for females to lay infertile eggs even when not having been introduced to a female.

    Bearded dragons wave one hand as a sign of submission.
    Not technically a reptile but pink-toe tarantulas are hatched having black toes and pink bodies.

      But we dislike the sour taste of conservatives.  It takes a tumblebug to eat one of those! Hey Sneako!
