Old World
lizards with 202 species described as of June 2015. These species come in a range of colors, and many species have the ability to change color.

Most species, the larger ones in particular, also have a prehensile tail.

Millionaire
A MILLIONAIRE is an individual whose net worth or wealth is equal to or exceeds one million units of currency . It can also be a person who owns one million units of currency in a bank account or savings account . Depending on the currency, a certain level of prestige is associated with being a millionaire, which makes that amount of wealth a goal for some and almost unattainable for others. In countries that use the short scale number naming system, a billionaire is someone who has at least a thousand times a million dollars, euros or the currency of the given country. Many national currencies have, or have had at various times, a low unit value, in many cases due to past inflation . It is obviously much easier, and less significant, to be a millionaire in those currencies. Thus a millionaire (in the local currency) in Hong Kong
Hong Kong
or Taiwan, for example, may be merely averagely wealthy, or perhaps less wealthy than average

Portmanteau
A PORTMANTEAU (/pɔːrtˈmæntoʊ/ ( listen ), /ˌpɔːrtmænˈtoʊ/ ; plural portmanteaus or portmanteaux /-ˈtoʊz/ ) or PORTMANTEAU WORD is a linguistic blend of words , in which parts of multiple words or their phones (sounds) are combined into a new word, as in smog, coined by blending smoke and fog, or motel, from motor and hotel. In linguistics , a portmanteau is defined as a single morph that represents two or more morphemes . The definition overlaps with the grammatical term contraction , but contractions are formed from words that would otherwise appear together in sequence, such as do and not to make don't, whereas a portmanteau word is formed by combining two or more existing words that all relate to a singular concept which the portmanteau describes. A portmanteau also differs from a compound , which does not involve the truncation of parts of the stems of the blended words

EPs generally do not contain as many tracks as albums, and are considered "less expensive and time-consuming" for an artist to produce than an album. An EP originally referred to specific types of vinyl records other than 78 rpm standard play (SP) and LP, but it is now applied to mid-length CDs and downloads as well. Ricardo Baca of The Denver Post
The Denver Post
said, "EPs—originally extended-play 'single' releases that are shorter than traditional albums—have long been popular with punk and indie bands." In the United Kingdom
