(1) The arboreal lizard of C. and S. America, Iguana iguana , is the archetype but other members of the New World family Iguanidae bear the name.(2) When contact with pets is implicated, reptiles such as iguanas , lizards, turtles and snakes are usually implicated.(3) We collected green iguana eggs from the island of Curacao in the Caribbean, where green iguanas attain much smaller maximum body size compared to conspecifics in Panama.(4) Carlow's answer to Indiana Jones is now taking his band of jungle creatures including snakes, dragon lizards, iguanas , turtles, tarantulas and scorpions onto the live stage with Ireland's first Reptile show.(5) The dry washes here partly conceal tortoises the size of refrigerators; iguanas as long as your arm sprawl in the baking sun.(6) Recent studies have shown that these iguanas have an unusual adaptive trait: their skeletons can shrink when times are tough and regrow in times of plenty.(7) And sure enough, when the gular pumping was eliminated, the monitor lizards acted more like Carrier's green iguanas .(8) For iguanas and many other reptiles, the solution is to take quick, shallow breaths when they walk and never to walk very fast.(9) However, not all iguanas in bad body condition had high CORT levels and we are presently investigating whether CORT levels are indeed causally related to the animals' death.(10) The iguanas also devour sea turtle eggs and shorebird nestlings.(11) The availability of many unusual species has led to more people considering keeping these animals in their homes, and tarantulas, iguanas , salamanders and snakes are all becoming more and more popular as pets.(12) Species studied have ranged from mosquitoes to butterflies, from fish to frogs, from tiny fence lizards to giant land iguanas in Galapagos, from hummingbirds to ostriches, from mice to elephants.(13) Over 1,000,000 baby iguanas are imported to America each year, and the majority are dead within 2 years.(14) Marine iguanas possess specialized hindgut fermenting microbes that help them to digest algae cell walls.(15) Hybrids occur everywhere scientists look, from blue whales (which mix with fin whales) to the finches and iguanas on Darwin's Galapagos Islands.(16) There are many other snakes of all different sizes, as well as chameleons, geckos, lizards, skinks, iguanas , spiders and huge tortoises.
