Reproduction in a mountain population of the coastal whiptail lizard cnemidophorus tigris multiscutatus



Reproduction in a mountain population of the coastal whiptail lizard cnemidophorus tigris multiscutatus



Copeia (2): 260-266



Reproduction was studied in a mountain population of the teiid lizard C. t. multiscutatus situated near its upper elevational limits at 1585-1830m in the San Gabriel Mountains of S California [USA]. Adults emerged from hibernation in early May and remained active until early Sept. Oviducal eggs were present from 11 June to 22 July; females produced 1-2 clutches. The average clutch size was 4.1 eggs. Testes were largest in early June, began regression in mid-July, and commenced recrudescence in Aug. Hatchlings appeared in mid-Aug. Fat bodies underwent a seasonal cycle with maximum sizes occurring in fall, reduced sizes on emergence from hibernation and minimum sizes in late spring.
