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.

When scientists ask big questions about the rules of nature, they often seek out unlikely creatures – lizards called anoles – to find the answers. In Laws of the Lizard, two filmmakers embark on a year-long adventure to reveal the surprising story of anoles, the most important lizards in the world!
