Holes Quotes by Louis Sachar
Holes the lizards scene
Yellow Spotted Lizard
The dangerous yellow-spotted lizard is described. The lizards have eleven yellow spots, which are hard to see on their yellow-green body. They have black teeth, and white tongues. They like to live in holes, which offer them shade, and they can leap out of even very deep holes in order to attack their prey. In addition to small animals, insects, and cactus thorns, the lizards like to eat sunflower seeds. Stanley, exhausted after digging his first hole, returns to camp. He enters the recreation room, which is called the wreck room.
Each lizard has yellow eyes, black teeth, red-rimmed eyelids, a milky white tongue, greenish skin, and exactly 11 spots; however, it is a common legend that you get close enough to count the spots, you will die. Interestingly, onions are a strong repellant for these lizards. Stanley Yelnats IV and Zero Hector Zeroni were both saved by that fact after eating a large number of onions, the same method Sam used, resulting in them smelling of onions. This prevented the lizards from biting them, despite being swarmed by them. After Camp Green Lake was shut down and turned to Mr Sir 's chagrin into a Girl Scout camp, the Girl Scouts were instructed to eat plenty of onions, likely as a safety measure.
They are divided into two subspecies, Lepidophyma flavimaculatum Obscurum and Lepidophyma flavimaculatum flavimaculatum. Yellow spotted lizards are one among the night lizards. On their tail the yellow spots are alternatively thin and faint bands. The color of their abdomen is also yellow. The color of their tongue is milky white and teeth, black. The yellow spotted lizards are small crooks.
