Nature's Family Trees or Hierarchical Searches

This query allows you to look at the way science has grouped various animals together. Of course, these are groupings are human invented, but scientists attempt and are continually revising their grouping to be as natural as possible.

The value of grouping animals is that within each group you can predict that they share common features or characters or even life styles. For example, what are the Dragons or the Monitors or Skinks?

Below you can find out the Family Tree or Hierarchical Groupings of Victorian Lizards.
