...12? assuming that they are hanging on the ceiling by their feet.

Although...

Are the lizards in the ceiling or on it?

Just saw Maggi's post. Hadn't though about that. Trying to do this and pay attention to my English teacher at the same time. :P

Didn't pay attention to that.. Nice remark ^^ and uhm, you're on a pc with internet during English class? :s Lucky you ;)

Since the question is, how many lizards are there IN the ceiling, the answer should be none, because they're ON the ceiling :s

Tricky riddle :P but nice ^^
