    1. Reviewed by Sam Bacchini    Nov 6, 2007

    Action: changed name from "Unknown" to "Tupinambis merianae "

    Reviewer's comments:
         "Photo clearly shows lizards in the genus Tupinambis. Markings appear to indicate this is Tupinambis merianae, but since there is no location given, it is possible that it could be the very similar T. teguixin."
