Ctenosaura similis
Ctenosaura similis Gray (Iguanidae) consumes fruits of a variety of plants in the deciduous forest of Santa Rosa National Park, Costa Rica. Seeds of Acacia farnesiana (L.) Willd. (Leguminosae) were common in ctenosaur dung during the dry season and proved viable. This lizard probably is a more important seed disperser in the tropical dry forest than previously thought.
