    Are they lizards, or geckos, or iguanas, or...?

    We don't have any critters like this where I live, so I have to ask what they are.

    Thank you!

    I think there are several different types of lizards & salamanders in the fabric and all have had been "artistically enhanced".

    One of those lizards has the tail of a chameleon but the head isn't quite right. Maybe they just threw lizard parts into a blender and came up with these. I'm guessing the colors come from a really good imagination.

    I see chameleons and geckos, with some kind of frilled lizards thrown in the mix... and some wild colors!

    some of them look like the salamanders that ccome out after the rain here. they are a dark green with lighter green spots.
    Those in your fabric are very colorful, but I am sure that they aren't that colorful out here in the real world.

    Yes, I'm sure they were made colorful just for fun. I think in the real world, if they were that bright they would all be poisonous... isn't that how it works for frogs, and monarch butterfly caterpillars?

    I agree, and a few chameleons to boot.

    If your looking at how to "list" them - I would just lump them all as lizards.

    OH I don't know but I need to buy a tiny bite of that fabric for a bug jar quilt I am hoping to make once I collect enough bug fabric. I hope to applique a few characters like on your fabric onto the quilt.
