Will this guy (X325) enjoy his new life on island H?

Each lizard is coded with a bag number which can be searched in our computer file to give us the recorded snout to vent length, tail length, mass, dewlap size, limb length and sex.

  5. Thinking about this really makes your strategies seem somewhat sophisticated and very useful when obtaining information.

  15. I want to try to answer the questions that were asked a lot.
    1) When I first saw Alexis put a lizard in a zip-lock bag I has the same reaction as all of you did. However, lizards have a slow metabolism and are exothermic (cold blooded) so they use way less oxygen than warn blooded (endothermic) animals like you. They can stay in a plastic bag for up to a week and be ok.

    2) None of the lizards have escaped so far.

    3) This is brown anole just like all of the animals in our experiment.

    4) In all of our experiments we study evolution. We really want to find out which lizards survive, which ones don't and why that is. We also want to know which males find the most mates, which females lay the most eggs and why. We want to know which traits natural selection is selecting.

    For how long were the lizards in the bags?

    ReplyDelete
  93. E- Many people asked this question also. The lizards were in the bags different amounts of time depending on when they were caught. The ones that waited in the bags the longest were there for about a week.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  97. Cherish- all of the lizards are out living their lives on the islands. I'm not sure if there is any way that they could escape unless they hitch a ride with a passing boat.

    Oh, and I did not see the royal wedding, but the after coverage is hard to miss.
