    The K-Nearest Neighbor algorithm is one of the commonly used methods for classification in machine learning and computational intelligence. A new research method and its improvement for the sleepy lizards based on the K-Nearest Neighbor algorithm and the traditional social network algorithms are proposed in this chapter. The famous paired living habit of sleepy lizards is verified based on our proposed algorithm. In addition, some common population characteristics of the lizards are also introduced by using the traditional social net work algorithms. Good performance of the experimental results shows efficiency of the new research method.
