Description
Lizards have seen dinosaurs come and go and our land mass split into continents. Not only do they have longevity but, in recent years, they have gained popularity. These cute crawlers have managed to wiggle their way into our lives from pets to pop culture. In this lizard-lovers book, Jim Cherry takes a tongue-in-cheek look at why people everywhere have gone crazy for this icon.

Charming and complex, these reclusive reptiles have scurried their way into myths and legends worldwide. Loco for Lizards explores the popularity of lizards in film, music, art, and even ad campaigns. Budweiser's eloquently animated chameleons, Frank and Louie, have charmed viewers from coast to coast, and Godzilla has captured multiple generations of film watchers. Jim Cherry covers the spectrum with lizard trivia, lizardabillia, and natural history in this entertaining and informative look at why the world is Loco for Lizards.
