Iguanas were once common throughout Jamaica but declined dramatically during the second half of the 19th century, after the introduction of the Asian mongoose (Herpestes javanicus) as a form of rat and snake control, until it was believed to exist only on the Goat islands near the Hellshire hills. The mongoose came to rely upon hatchling iguanas as a .

Anolis grahami, commonly called Graham's anole, the Jamaican anole or the turquoise anole, is a common species of anole lizard that is endemic to the island of Jamaica, although it has been introduced to Bermuda.

Data on the natural history of Anolis reconditus, an arboreal iguanid lizard, living in the montane mist forest of east central Jamaica, is presented.

Visiting Jamaica is truly a sensory experience. Not only does one see astounding beauty and feel that warm Caribbean sun, but one also hears every night a collection of chirps, croaks, and hoots that fairly falls between a symphony and a cacophony. This unmistakable ruckus, which persists until birdsong takes over at dawn, is the work of an array of nocturnal lizards and amphibians.

There are 4 species of small lizards in Bermuda. One is endemic; the Bermuda Skink, and the other 3 are introduced species of Anoles (Anolis sp.).Anolis lizards have a retractable fan (called a dewlap) which the males extend from a throat pouch during courtship or territorial displays.

Our approach centers upon the Jamaican radiation of anoline lizards (genus Norops) as a tractable, small monophyletic assemblage consisting of species representing several ecomorphs.

One group of lizards-the iguanid genus Anolis in the West Indies-is now sufficiently well known to permit an empirical test of ecological theories of colonization in terms of these relatively slowly colonizing forms.

The breadth of morphological diversity demonstrated by Anolis dewlaps is impressive (Figure 1).This broad diversity gives the impression that no two dewlaps are exactly alike.

jamaican vireo. The Jamaican Vireo (Vireo modestus) is a species of bird in the Vireonidae family. It is endemic to Jamaica. Studies of chromosomal variation were undertaken in Anolis grahami. Multiple fission events and extensive variation involving heterochromatic sequences were observed.

Distribution of the chromosomal variants did not coincide with subspecies borders. Chromosome numbers ranging from 30 to 37 were observed in both morphological subspecies; different rearrangements were involved in by:. Rainforest reptiles list, with facts and pictures.

During the Mesozoic Era reptiles – in the.The concept of "sensory drive" suggests that animal sensory systems, which have evolved to allow animals to function effectively (e.g., capture prey, avoid predators) in their environments, act as a directional selective force in the evolution of animal signals.

In this article this idea is explored by examining the visual system and the visual displays of anoline by:   An adult male anole lizard (Anolis garmani) from Annotto Bay, Jamaica, that lives in the tops of trees. It is very similar to other lizards on nearby islands thanks to convergent evolution.
