Biologists, wildlife filmmakers and best friends set out on a year-long quest…traveling from remote forests and tiny islands to high-tech labs and big cities, all in pursuit of these lizards that defy our expectations. As they battle their rivals, evade predators, and survive in hostile environments, these little lizards seem to meet every challenge with an ingenious adaptation. In the process, they reveal how simple rules – what we call the “laws of the lizard” – can explain the complexity of nature.
