Central American Ameiva Lizard (Ameiva festiva)

Holcosus festivus , commonly known as the Middle American ameiva , Central American whiptail , or tiger ameiva , is a species of whiptail lizard endemic to Central America and northern South America. A similar species is Holcosus quadrilineatus. Juveniles have metallic-blue tails. Three subspecies are recognized, including the nominotypical subspecies. Nota bene : A taxon author binomial authority or trinomial authority in parentheses indicates that the taxon species or subspecies was originally described in a different genus in this case, a genus other than Holcosus.


British Herpetological Society

The Herpetological Journal is the Society's prestigious quarterly scientific journal. A total of 51 individuals were captured using drift fences with pitfall and funnel traps. With equal sampling efforts across sites, 19 individuals were caught along a gap within secondary forest, 29 individuals were caught at a grassland site and three specimens were caught in primary forest. The proportion of immature individuals differed significantly among sampling sites in the three habitats, whereas sex ratio did not. Snout-vent length did not differ between sexes or habitats. The chigger mite Eutrombicula alfreddugesi was the only ecto-parasite found to infest A.
