    Lizards and snakes (squamate reptiles) are the most diverse vertebrate group in Australia, with approximately described species, representing about 10% of the global squamate diversity. Squamates are a vital part of the Australian ecosystem, but their conservation has been hindered by a lack of knowledge of their diversity, distribution, biology and key threats. The Action Plan for. Evolution of Reptiles. Reptiles originated approximately million years ago during the Carboniferous period. One of the oldest-known amniotes is Casineria, which had both amphibian and reptilian of the earliest undisputed reptiles was after the first amniotes appeared, they diverged into three groups (synapsids, anapsids, and diapsids) during the Permian.

Lizards are a widespread group of squamate reptiles, with over 6, species, ranging across all continents except Antarctica, as well as most oceanic island chains. The group is paraphyletic as it excludes the snakes and Amphisbaenia; some lizards are more closely related to these two excluded groups than they are to other s range in size from chameleons and geckos a few.
