EDITORS COMMENTS
Hatteria punctata, also known as the Great Fringed Lizard or the Punctuated Fringed Lizard, is an intriguing reptile endemic to New Zealand. This illustration, taken from "The Lizards of Australian and New Zealand" by John Edward Gray, showcases the unique features of this fascinating creature. Belonging to the Rhynchocephalia order, Hatteria punctata is a member of the Sphenodontidae family, which also includes the tuatara. The sauropsid reptile is characterized by its diapsid skull, lepidosaur body covering, and distinct fringes along its sides. These fringes, which are actually modified scales, are believed to function as sensory organs, allowing the lizard to detect vibrations in its environment. Hatteria punctata is native to the North Island and the Three Kings Islands of New Zealand. It is a terrestrial reptile, preferring to inhabit forested areas and forest edges. The lizard is omnivorous, feeding on a variety of insects, spiders, snails, and even fruits. Despite its striking appearance, Hatteria punctata is relatively small, growing up to 30 centimeters (12 inches) in length. Its coloration ranges from olive-green to brown, with black spots and bars running along its body. The lizard's head is triangular in shape, with a pointed snout and large, round eyes. The Great Fringed Lizard is considered vulnerable due to habitat loss and predation by introduced species. Conservation efforts are underway to protect this unique and fascinating reptile, ensuring its survival for future generations to appreciate.
