Geographical Range Solomon Islands (in the South Pacific)
Habitat Tropical forests
Scientific Name Corucia zebrata
Conservation Status Not listed by IUCN

With a prehensile (grasping) tail to help it move among the branches, this large lizard is well suited for its tropical forest habitat. Unfortunately, the Solomons are rapidly being deforested for lumber and agriculture. Destruction of habitat and depletion by the pet trade have greatly reduced this animal's chances for survival.
