Reproduction in a nebraska usa sand hills population of the northern prairie lizard sceloporus undulatus garmani



Reproduction in a nebraska usa sand hills population of the northern prairie lizard sceloporus undulatus garmani



American Midland Naturalist 106(1): 157-164



The reproductive cycle of S. undulatus was studied in western Nebraska. Females mature in the 1st yr following hatching at a size of 45 mm SVL [snout-vent length]. Two clutches averaging 5.5 eggs each are produced. Egg sizes are similar to other grassland populations and contain .apprx. 650 g-cal/egg. Egg weight to body weight ratios of 0.33 were the highest which have been reported for any S. undulatus population. Variation in life history characteristics within and between grassland and eastern woodland habitat types are explicable given a knowledge of the growing season, predation intensity and demographic environment.
