Bilateral symmetry

Most organisms but not all have some type of symmetry. The lizard in the picture has what is known as bilateral symmetry. Another example of an organism with bilateral symmetry are humans. Bilateral symmetry is when you could draw a line down the middle of an organism and the right side would look like identical to the left side. All arthropods are bilaterally symmetrical, and many other organisms are, as well. Radial symmetry is another type of symmetry that organisms such as anemones have, and some organisms have no symmetry at all.
