The lizard that looks like a dragon is called the spectacled lizard. It is found in the woods in the United States and in some parts of Africa. It is said to be the oldest Australian lizard. They can grow up to six and a half feet long and live mostly on the forest floors. They have sharp teeth for chewing and a head with a thick skull to protect it.

The lizard that looks like a dragon has two rows of scales on its back, rather than the usual one row of scales on its face. This makes them seem like they have two faces. They are also very large. The largest lizard is over thirty inches in length.

Owing to their size, these lizards spend most of their time basking in the sun on rocks in ponds or streams. They like to hunt fish and other small reptiles. In fact, they are among the best hunters of small ungulates. You will see them hunting in packs, but this behavior is only observed when prey is close to them.

There are only three species of this reptile: the Northern Brown Boar, the Black-Rumped Slatybacked lizard, and the Barred tail lizard. All these lizards are found in North America. Except for the Black-Rumped Slatybacked, which is only found in Oregon and British Columbia, they are all found in the states of Idaho, Washington, California, and Montana. The Barred tail lizard is only found in Oregon and California. They have been recorded in British Columbia. No one is quite sure where the Barred tail lizard originated.

The name of this creature comes from the area in which it was discovered. It was named after an American trapper, Cyrus W. Bullard, who was given the job of searching for a new kind of meat in an area in and around Corallale, Oregon. He had seen what he thought were dragons, but they were actually smaller than a dragon. He did not report his sighting to authorities because he wanted to test the idea on live birds. He reports that the birds he released were no bigger than a chicken and that they also fed on the ground and moved around a lot.

Legend has it that the Black-Rumped Slatybacked lizard was so named because it was so similar in appearance to the legendary Dragon. He was also said to have been bitten by a dragon, but because he was covered with rashes and had difficulty breathing, the authorities eventually gave him the name. When he was captured and shipped to Crater Lake, he was chained to a fence post and left to starve. A snake bit him and he ate part of the snake to save his own life.

They are not the only lizards in Corallale, Oregon. The Wattle Snake, which was thought to be extinct, was found on the banks of the Willamette River. A fisherman found the snake near his boat and brought it back to Corallale. The local people claimed that the Wattle Snake lived in the forest near where the fishermen went fishing. When the United States National Park Service tried to capture the Wattle Snake for study, the local citizens tried to block the search.

Legend has it that there is an underground cave in the Corallale area that contains many skulls of deceased inhabitants. One of them is believed to be a mummy which may have been buried with pots and other belongings. There are also stories of haunted houses in the area, although none have been found. A school in Corallale was built in the 1920s because of the local legend of a monster that resides there.
