日本の特に都市部の人は、トカゲをあまり見分けていない。身近には主に2種類の昼に活動するトカゲがいます。でも、「つるつるのトカゲ」と「ざらざらのトカゲ」、という風に教えてあげると、結構すぐに話を飲み込んでくれます。みんなあまり知らないようで、意外と誰でも接する機会はあるのかもしれないですね。
The person in the city part of Japan is not good at the distinction of the kind of the lizard. Location of two kinds of lizards that act in daytime in Japanese mainland. Soon even the person who doesn’t know the lizard well understands that I teach that there are two kinds of lizards, one is “Slippery lizard” and another is “Rough skin lizard”. They were not interested in the lizard, but they might have touched for a long time.

ちなみに写真のニホンカナヘビは、ざらざらのトカゲ。つるつるのもまた今度、紹介しましょう!
By the way, Japanese grass lizard in the photograph is “Rough skin lizard”. I’ll introduce photograph of “Slippery lizard” if there is a chance.
