Talk to a science teacher or pet shop worker for information about how to care for lizards. Keep in mind that the lizards will need a home after the experiment, so make sure you are able to provide one for them when you are done. It may also be possible to borrow the lizards and the tank from a teacher, a friend, or even from a local pet shop that might be willing to support your scientific experiment.
