Three-eyed Lizard


Sometimes two eyes just aren’t enough, thankfully the Tuatara, a lizard that lives on a few remote islands near New Zealand, has an extra one. The Tuatara has a third eye on the top of its head, we aren’t certain what it is used for but we do know that it gets covered by scales as the lizard grows up.
