Tegu Lizard Management Manual

CABI & Wildlife Conservation Society, Bolivia, 2009.


The Red Tegu Lizard (Tupinambis rufescens) is native to the Chaco dry forest of southern Bolivia.

Much prized by local inhabitants for its hide, which fetches a good price in cities, it has become the object of one of many management projects initiated in the area. Through a management plan regulating hunting of the lizards, both local hunters and conservationists want to make sure lizard populations are kept healthy.

I created the cartoons on this page to include in the management plan.
