The Eastern Glass Lizard, sometimes called the glass snake, is a reptile that looks like a snake. Unlike snakes they have moveable eyelids, external ear opening and inflexible jaws. They are found on the coastal areas of Georgia and South Carolina. During the day they search for insects, spiders, other invertebrates and small reptiles. Like other lizards they have the ability to break off their tails when threatened. The tail continues to move while the lizard sometimes stays motionless, allowing him to escape by being undetected.
