Lizards Home > Library > In The Wild
 

The MonteCristo Arboreal Alligator Lizard (Abronia montecristoi) has a natural habitat in areas from El Salvador and Honduras. It is one of the worlds critically endangered species.

The MonteCristo Arboreal Alligator Lizard, as its name suggests, is arboreal, spending most of their time in the tree tops. Their colours allow them to blend in with the surroundings very well. Brown is the dominant overall colour. Their backs are a medium brown with redish-brown lines, and a brownish-yellow on their sides. The head of the MonteCristo Arboreal Alligator Lizard is also their redish-brown colour.

The MonteCristo Arboreal Alligator Lizard is covered in scales. The scales on their heads have small black dots, but are found nowhere else on its body. All of their limbs and their uwndersides are redish-brown.

The MonteCristo Arboreal Alligator Lizard lives in cloud forests. These forests are at very high altitudes where cloud formations occur. These areas have high levels of biodiversity, mainly due to the high volumes of water in the area.
