Lizards swallow food. They do not chew.

Komodo dragons (up to eight feet long) ambush their prey, tear off large chunks of flesh (deer and large pigs) and swallow it whole. Sometimes it takes them 15-20 minutes to swallow small mammals, up to the size of a goat, whole.

Green iguanas are primarily herbivores, consuming insects as a by-product.
