Do you mean tuatara? They can be found in New Zealand.

"Tuataras are related to an ancient order of reptiles that died out at least 60 million years ago."

Another interesting note is that they are not lizards!
Check out the June 2003 issue of "Reptiles" Magazine for an article on them and where I got the above quote.
