Tarentola annularis is a climbing gecko with a wide distribution in Africa north of the equator. In the present paper, we describe the development of the osteocranium of this lizard, from the first appearance of the cranial elements up to the point of hatching. This is based on a combination of histology and cleared and stained specimens. This is the first comprehensive account of gekkotan pre-hatching skull development based on a comprehensive series of embryos, rather than a few selected stage...

Choristoderes are a small clade of freshwater aquatic reptiles known from deposits of Jurassic–Miocene age. They show their greatest diversity in the Early Cretaceous of Asia, with seven recorded g...

Abstract Osteoderms are hard tissues embedded in the dermis of vertebrates and have been suggested to be formed from several different mineralized regions. However, their nano architecture and micro mechanical properties had not been fully characterized. Here, using electron microscopy, µ-CT, atomic force microscopy and finite element simulation, an in-depth characterization of osteoderms from the lizard Heloderma suspectum, is presented. Results show that osteoderms are made of three different ...

Abstract The Early Cretaceous lizard Yabeinosaurus is well-represented in the Jehol Biota of northeast China, with specimens yielding information on ontogenetic development, reproductive strategy, and diet, as well as skeletal morphology. However, a large, well-preserved, new specimen of Yabeinosaurus robustus from the Lamadong locality, Liaoning, provides further insights into the morphology and biology of this species. Integumentary traces demonstrate that, in life, Y. robustus was coloured wi...

ABSTRACTThe lizard genus Yabeinosaurus is a common and relatively well-known member of Chinese Lower Cretaceous Jehol Biota, found in both the Yixian and Jiufotang formations of north-eastern China...

: Non-avian reptiles are good models to investigate structural and developmental differences between amniotes. Investigations of craniofacial development in a complete series of embryos from oviposition up to hatching are still relatively rare. Consideration of a complete series can reveal developmental events that were previously missed, and thus correct or confirm theories about developmental events. The Egyptian Sand snake, Psammophis sibilans, has been a key species in descriptions of the sn...

ABSTRACTThe eggs of fish, amphibians, and many invertebrates are soft, delicate structures that are only rarely preserved in the fossil record. Here we report egg masses preserved as inclusions in ...

The Jurassic record of lizards in eastern Asia is poor by comparison with that of the Cretaceous. In China, to date, the only confirmed records from this period are an armoured lizard from Shishugou, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, of probable Oxfordian age, and two unnamed juvenile specimens from the slightly older, Callovian-Oxfordian, Daohugou locality of Nei Mongol. Here we describe the first lizard from the locality of Guancaishan, Jianping County, Liaoning Province. This locality is clos...

A small fauna of vertebrates is recorded from the Insect Limestone, Bembridge Marls Member, Bouldnor Formation, late Priabonian, latest Eocene, of the Isle of Wight, UK. The taxa represented are unidentified teleost fishes, lizards including a scincoid, unidentified birds and the theridomyid rodent Isoptychus . The scincoid represents the youngest record of the group in the UK. Of particular note is the taphonomic interpretation based on the preservation of anatomical parts of land-based tetrapo...
