Desert dwelling lizards definitely absorb water through their skin. Lizards are also able to extract water from the food they eat, Researchers have discovered that the Australian horny devil and the Texas horned have straw-like tubes under  their scales. Water is funneled through the body through these tubes into the mouth where it is swallowed.
