Alligator -- Maternal protection, connection to Mother Earth, revenge through patience,  understanding ancient knowledge, rough, stern, stealthy, basic survival, 'The Ancient One of the Swamp'

Axolotl -- Remaining unscarred. Regeneration, healing and health. Remaining firm in your beliefs, remaining unscarred despite trauma, associations with the Aztec God Xolotl, warning against sacrificing your youth. On the negative side; refusing to grow, and seeing change as a sign of weakness.

Chameleon -- A third eye brings clairvoyance and aura sensitivity. Sensitive to changes in the environment. A symbol of the inconstancy of life and the Sun as a source of power. Chameleon teaches how to show true colors of the self in your environment and in your sincere emotional nature. Chameleon gives people the awareness of their own psychic ability and intuition(Anoles are often mistaken for chameleons. Chameleons are primarily found in the mainland of sub-Saharan Africa and on the island of Madagascar, although a few species are also found in northern Africa, southern Europe, the Middle East, southern India, Sri Lanka and several smaller islands in the western Indian Ocean, while Anoles are found in Southeastern USA, Cuba, Jamaica, and other Caribbean islands. If you are not sure see “Anole” below under “Lizard”)

Crocodile -- Primordial power, warns of danger, aggressively defensive, dark and brackish places

Frog --,The magic of both water and land, metamorphosis and transformation they are symbols of water magic and the magic of the night for working with emotions and dreams, cleansing the negativity from the environment. The frog is a singer of songs of the ancient watery beginnings of life calling forth the rains. Exceptional sight giving clairsentient and clairvoyant abilities with a sixth sense connection to the greater populace, leading to the discovery of the two-fold aspect of life.

  • Tadpole -- Metamorphosis, the power of change and coming of age. The inner child reveled

 A cute little creature, but one that has managed to achieve great things. Geckos can originate from one country and within the space of 10 years be found in many other locations around the world suggesting the work of a quiet achiever. It also has the feel of networking; sending out your eyes and your ears to gather in information. The Gecko can move on and up any smooth surface with ease. It could represent the ability to tackle any problem with ease. The gecko female is parthenogenic meaning that it can reproduce without a male so it could also represent versatility and the ability to work alone without need of assistance from others.

Lizard  (general) -- Relaxed, knows when to back off, hidden defenses, elusiveness, appears when we need to analyze our present reality and brings the message for immediate change in some area of our life, pay attention to your dreams and visions 

  • Anole -- (Anoles are mistake for "chameleons";{see above}. This is due to the color-changing ability of the green anoles who, when severely stressed or ill will turn dark brown. They are not true chameleons, which are a species of lizards that look very different from anoles and come from different parts of the world. When a green anole turns brown, it is a sign of severe stress. Stressed anoles may turn green at night when their lights are out and they are asleep, but will turn brown again once they wake up and start the new day.) True harmony comes from trusting your own perceptions rather than others. If "that" is what you want no path is to tough for you. 
  • Frilled-Neck Lizard -- Hiding who you are. Knowing who you are. Using façade as a mechanism for growth. Doubt and self-confidence. Preserving the hidden self.
  • Skink -- Darting and swift, the lined skink is an especially endearing lizard. Totem animal for the fleet of foot!

Newt -- Posturing defense, poisonous reaction, living between land and water, living between the waking and the dream state

Salamander -- A fiery element that roams between Earth and Water and those with it as their totem often lead a double life. The salamander signifies all things that are hidden and are often seen as the keepers of dreams. Their ability to live in water and on land can reflect dreaming to be lucid and connected to the Mysteries of the Earth.  It can cloak itself in the face of adversity and is a magical talisman that brings comfort in the darkness. The appearance of the salamander heralds that a time of transformation is coming from sources outside of the self.  The totem animal of Appalachia.
