Re: lizard growth question



If I recall correctly, maternal body mass mostly affects clutch size in Iguana, rather than egg size or neonate mass. I wouldn't be surprised if there was some affect on juvenile mass, though.

If lizards, such as Iguana, are sexually mature at half their final size, are the juveniles and eggs of small mothers different in size from those of large mothers? Or are Iguana eggs pretty much the same size no matter the age and size of the mother?
