Lacertilia Lac`er*til"i*a, n. pl. [NL., fr. L. lacertus a lizard.] (Zo["o]l.) An order of Reptilia, which includes the lizards. [1913 Webster]

Note: They are closely related to the snakes, and like the latter, usually have the body covered with scales or granules. They usually have eyelids, and most of then have well-formed legs; but in some groups (amphisb[ae]na, glass-snake, etc.) the legs are absent and the body is serpentlike. None are venomous, unless {Heloderma} be an exception. The order includes the chameleons, the {Cionocrania}, or typical lizards, and the amphisb[ae]nas. See {Amphisb[ae]na}, {Gecko}, {Gila monster}, and {Lizard}. [1913 Webster]
