Kids will love these free printable desert lizard coloring pages. There are a number of lizards that can be found living in deserts.

Although lizards are cold-blooded, they can be found in both a cold place like a forest and a hot place like a desert.

Desert lizards are known to regulate their internal body temperatures, thus adapting to the climatic conditions in a desert. Certain special mechanisms used by desert lizards include Metachromatism, which is their ability to adjust body color according to the temperature variation and Thermoregulation, with the help of regulating their internal core temperature.

Desert lizards also practice burrowing by creating underground passages or burrows to escape the heat.

Certain lizards like the fringe-toed lizard have the ability to burrow sand quickly with their head and disappear without a trace when encountered with a predator. This helpful sheet can be used to help kids with their coloring skills and also learn some facts about desert lizards.
