Lizards: One of the most intelligent reptiles
Recently an experiments had shown that reptiles as lizards are one of the most intelligent organisms. We, the human being have never thought that even the lizards can have the capability to think and pursue things.
The tropical lizard, Anolis evermanni, was able to fight back and cross the obstacle which was put in front of it. In an experiment, a concealed worm was kept underneath a disc, to find out whether the lizards were able to recognize it. If yes, how come it is going to take it? For this six different lizards were used. Anolis evermanni was able to detect the hidden organism underneath the disc.
Beside, the researchers also tried to get a pattern of color selection by the lizards. For this they had kept the same colored disc as above (means the one with the worm) along with the two other differently colored discs. The lizards were able to recognize the same color of the disc as the one associated with the worm. Even when they swapped the discs, they were able to recognize the correct one.
These results were published in Royal Society journal Biology Letters.
