Takydromus DAUDIN, 1802
Takydromus is a lizard genus which members inhabit a large part of Asia. Members of this species are noticeable because of their slender appearance and their agile movements.
Members of this genus are extremely slender in appearance. The tail is about 2 to 5 times as long as the snout-vent length. The basic colour is normally brown, often with lateral stripes and dark spots. The dorsal scales are keeled and large. These keels form continuous longitudinal rows. The toes contain lamellae. The collar may be reduced or completely absent.
This lizard genus is found in Japan, in the Amur region and throughout entire eastern Asia to Indonesia.
These lizards are mainly terrestrial although some species can be found on trees. Some members of this genus are found both on rocks and in relatively damp forests. Other species inhabit open grasslands.
Females of Takydromus spp lay 1-10 eggs per clutch and up to 6 clutches per year.
