Madagascar spiny-tailed iguana (Oplurus cuvieri) on a branch. Madagascar spiny-tailed iguanas are a member of the Opluridae family. Opluridae (Madagascan Iguanas) are moderately sized lizards that are endemic to Madagascar. They are iguanids, not true iguanas but lay eggs and have teeth that resemble those of true iguanas. They are mainly rock-dwelling, terrestrial lizards, but some do venture into the trees. Photographed in the Montagne des Francais Reserve, Madagascar.
