Origins of Lzard, a Snake-Like God
The Lzard is a reptile family that is native to Mexico and Central America. These guys are probably the most popular lizards have down here in Cali… they’re everywhere at this time of the year. You can usually spot them laying eggs in wet areas late in the evening… if you go outside at night in the mornings, you’ll often turn over a wet log on your patio or deck and find dozens of them hiding and waiting for you. They come in all sizes, colors, and combinations of color you can imagine. Many people collect these lizards as pets or show them off in their homes, making them an interesting addition to any collection.
This species of lizards is actually part of the Old World Palm Family (Lygaeidae). Other familiar lizards from the Old World is the Amaryllis, Boceus, and Irritans. This one’s pretty distinct though, being the only non-venomous member of this family. The scientific name for it is Lacerta flavimaculata. Some other commonly known names for these lizards include the Blue-footed boxers, the California Blue-footed boxers, and the Leylandii.
The Lzard has two distinctive features that set it apart from other reptiles. One is the fact that it has an enlarged tongue which it uses to suck insects and larva from its muddy pond home. It also has a number of taste buds on its tongue, which allow it to accurately determine the size of prey items that it would like to eat. The other distinguishing feature is its head-shaped profile, which gives it the appearance of a cross between an ant and a bull. Even though the lizard looks rather intimidating, it is very soft bodied and is hence easy to tame.
Its scientific name, Lzardia armata, is derived from a combination of two words, the first being armata, a French word that means “arm”. The second word, dermis, is derived from a combination of two words: “derma” meaning skin and “arme” meaning muscle or tissue. Hence, the word placenta literally translates as “lacewing” or “dirt- eater”.
Despite its close relationship with the etymology of the word, there are actually some significant differences between the two. For instance, unlike the etymology of the word, the name of Lzard does not derive from any animal. On the other hand, the word placenta does derive from the French word ‘laert’, which means “little lily”. Therefore, the two words actually mean “tailed lizard” or “bearded lizard”.
Lacertus is the most probable source of the name. It is mentioned in the Bible as the companion of Moses. However, there are many other biblical references that mention the presence of other reptiles, and these include frogs, toads, hedgehogs and snakes. The etymology of the word points to the fact that the Mediterranean waters in which the turtles lived (which is near the Black Sea) gave birth to a legendary kingdom called the Lxavirus in ancient Egyptian mythology.
Lacertus is named after a famous Greek author, Lysippus, who is generally regarded as the father of philosophy. According to the story, he was stoned to death because he had offended the Egyptian queen, Cleopatra. After his death, his ghost appeared before the princess and announced that he would bless her if she would take him back to her land. As a result, the Egyptian goddess Anubis forced him into a magical slumber, and from then on, the Lacedaemonians were always linked to the symbols of the Lacedaemonian kings, including the symbols of the trident and the scepter. The etymology of the name Lacertus is from a combination of two Greek words, “la” meaning “shank” and “tas” meaning “stone”.
The etymology of the name Lzard is also from a combination of two Latin words: “lavra” meaning “leather” and “dura” meaning “wild beast”. The word dura, which means “wild beast”, was corrupted into “dura” during the middle ages, while lavra is the generic word for all types of leather. In modern times, the word lizard is often used to refer to any type of reptile, but this etymology does not account for the origin of the name, and it is uncertain whether the name Lzard is related to any reptile species. However, some authors have noted the similarity between the appearance of a figure similar to that of the Plesiosaur (another ancient Greek sea god), and that of the snake-like Lizards. The similarity between the two characters was noted in Greek mythology, and many Christians believe that these creatures were once part of the Greek pantheon.
