        We examined aspects of natural history and ecology of the black-chested spiny-tailed iguana, Ctenosaura melanosterna, on Cayo Cochino Menor, Honduras, over 6 years to provide baseline data to assist in management of this critically endangered species. Size of territory is resource-dependent, and the species seems to prefer habitats with open canopy. Author: Chad E. Montgomery, Stesha A. Pasachnik, Leslie E. Ruyle, Julius A. Frazier, Steven E. W.

The Mexican Spiny-tailed iguana is a social lizard, which has adapted to living in groups as opposed to other species of Ctenosaura which tend to be solitary animals. These iguanas are excellent climbers, and prefer a rocky habitat with plenty of crevices to hide in, rocks to bask on, and nearby trees to : Reptilia.
