A bit late for me now, Ros.
Someone else post please..
I mean, iguana . . .
(sorry, i've no idea. just gawking)
The tuatara is a very ancient lizard-like reptile that has been around since the Lower Triassic period, about 200 million years ago. They are a member of the Rhynchocephalians order. All others of this order are extinct. The upper jaw of these reptiles is beak-like. The entire order is now represented by one genus with only one species, the tuatara. Its name, tuatara, is a Maori word that means "peaks on the back". Sphenodon, its generic name, means 'wedge tooth'.
The difference between lizards and tuataras are in their skeletal structure. They have an extra bone on the side of the skull that anchors the bone to which the lower jaw is hinged. On its eye there are three eyelids. Its scales are unlike those of other reptiles because they do not have free edges or overlap. Otherwise they look somewhat like an iguana. ........
.......For a nest the tuatara usually uses abandoned petral burrows. Sometimes the bird and reptile share the same burrow. If necessary, however, the tuatara can dig it's own burrow.
I'm sorry I was absent for the hecklemesh spider round.....
Ros, is it a Tuatara - - (Sphenodon punctatus)?
Yes, Ros, it's a Pangolin.
Mine is a Manis Tricuspis and yours is a Manis Javanica...
Now, if it's a game between you and me, Ros...
It's a Scarlet Tanager.
