- another term for glass lizard
- ‘Their common name, glass lizard or glass snake, is due to their ability, like many lizards, of dropping their tail.’

- ‘Lizards typically have four legs with five toes on each foot, although a few, such as the worm lizard and the so-called glass snake, are limbless, retaining only internal vestiges of legs.’

- ‘As children we called them glass snakes and I often found them in our Orlando backyard where I played and learned to appreciate resident wildlife.’
