Iguania is a suborder of Squamata (lizards and snakes) which includes iguanas, chameleons, agamids, and New World Lizards. However, most of these reptiles except agamids do not occur naturally in Malaysia. Iguanians generally live on trees and possess primitively fleshy, non-grasping tongues, and are believed to be closely related to snakes.
Iguanian lizards in Malaysia are generally small to medium-sized, and can often be found perching on trees during mornings, basking for sunlight. These lizards generally remain inactive unless disturbed, and are known to change the colour of their skins based on environmental conditions.
