These are amphibious creatures which are found anywhere, where there is grass and water. They are easily found in gardens and parks, and they hop from place to place. They eat insects, which they tend to catch via the usage of their rather long tongues. They can spend a good amount of time underwater, as well as on land.

They belong to the reptile category, which means that they are cold blooded. They have slithery smooth skin, which makes them slippery. They are found in homes, where they are hanging from walls. They catch insects as food as well.
However, they have no relationship with toads whatsoever, apart from the fact that one type of lizard looks like a toad.
