Do lizards eat termites?

Lizards' diets range from meat to insects to flowers to leafy greens to eggs, etc. However, most lizards are rather specialized in diet. In order to correctly and completely answer your question, we'd need specificity on which type of lizard we are talking about.

Further information on specific lizard species that eat termites:

Geckos are known to feed on termites, as do skinks and legless lizards. Lizards in the dragon family, such as frill-necked lizards and bearded dragons, also eat termites.

How do Monitor lizards kill their prey?

Monitors have very sharp teeth to tear their prey, and even if the prey gets away initially, they may die from the wound.

For many years, it was believed that the many bacteria which monitor lizards harbour in their mouth were responsible for these deaths: after all, according to the National Geographic, the saliva of monitor lizards such as the Komodo dragon carries between 50 and 80 different types of bacteria. Other species were also known to carry bacteria. However, scientists were dubious about this theory, as prey tended to die within two days - a very short time for bacteria to be able to kill an animal.

However, scientists have discovered that the bite of the Komodo dragon delivers a powerful venom, comparable to that of a cobra, which actually thins the blood, increasing blood flow and creating a state of shock in the victim. The serrated teeth of a komodo dragon are used to open a gaping wound in its prey, enabling the venom to flow easily. Further investigations have indicated that all species of monitor lizards appear to have a venomous bite.

Can a Corn snake eat a blue belly lizard?

Um yeah it can but if it is wild it may contain parasites so don't catch one in your backyard you can buy similar lizards called anoles at the pet store. It also depends on how big your snakes is. Make sure that the thickest part of your snake is bigger that what you are feeding it or it can cause damage to your corn snake.

People! There is absolutely nothing wrong with feeding mice! They are the perfect feeder so stop trying to find a better one! By the way, "blue belly lizard" could refer to almost any male lizard of the Sceloporus genus (as well as many other genuses), which in my experience always have mites, which will transfer to your snake.
