, commonly known as Morelet's alligator lizard, is a species of lizard in the family Anguidae. The species is endemic to Central America.
Problem insects include red imported fire ants ("Solenopsis invicta"), yellow crazy ants ("Anoplolepis gracilipes"), Black Portuguese millipede ("Ommatoiulus
"), Western honey bees ("Apis mellifera"), and European wasps ("Vespula germanica"; known elsewhere by the common name "German wasps").
American crocodiles, "Crocodylus acutus", are found in this land-locked, brackish lake in large numbers, and have instilled fear among the local community. It is one factor responsible for the poor development of the lake as an ecotourism project. Extensive studies have been reported on this species of American crocodile, as opposed to the Central American "Crocodylus
" and the South American "Crocodylus intermedius".
Morelet's crocodile "(Crocodylus
)", also known as the Mexican crocodile, is a modest sized crocodilian found only in fresh waters of the Atlantic regions of Mexico, Belize and Guatemala. It usually grows to about in length. It is a Least Concern species.
Two members of the glass-frog family Centrolenidae (Centrolenella fleischmanni, C. prosoblepon) and the hylid subfamily Phyllomedusinae (Agalychnis
, Pachymedusa dacnicolor) reflect near-infrared light (700 to 900 nanometers) when examined by infrared color photography. Infrared reflectance may confer adaptive advantage to these arboreal frogs both in thermoregulation and infrared cryptic coloration.
This department is also responsible for quarantine control on all plants, soil and animal products brought into the state. The Agricultural Protection Board [needs updating] is also part of this and responsible for the eradication of pests in Western Australia including the rainbow lorikeet, skeleton weed, and Portuguese millipedes ("Ommatoiulus
Local wildlife includes the following species, some of which are highly endangered: jaguar ("Panthera onca"), puma ("Felis concolor"), ocelot ("Leopardus wiedii"), Baird's tapir ("Tapirus bairdii"), red brocket deer ("Mazama americana"), howler monkey ("Alouatta pigra"), red snook ("Petenia splendida"), Morelet's Crocodile ("Crocodylus

Morelet's tree frog ("Agalychnis
") is a species of tree frog of family Hylidae. It belongs to the leaf frog subfamily (Phyllomedusinae), and is found in Belize, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Mexico. They have also been called black-eyed leaf frog and popeye hyla.
78 different species of reptiles and amphibians have been documented in Shipstern Conservation & Management Area. They include salamanders, frogs, toad, iguanas, snakes and the Morelet's crocodile ("Crocodylus
"). Due to overharvesting, the Mexican musk turtle ("Staurotypus triporcatus") has probably disappeared from the area. Other turtles, among which the scorpion mud turtle ("Kinosternon scorpioides"), the furrowed wood turtle ("Rhinoclemmys areolata") or the white-lipped mud turtle (Kinosternon leucostomum), are still fairly common.
Ommatoiulus moreleti (spelt "
" in older publications), commonly known as the Portuguese millipede, is a herbivorous millipede native to the southern Iberian Peninsula where it shares its range with other "Ommatoiulus" species. From here, it has spread by international commerce to a number of new localities. This species was accidentally introduced into Australia without its natural enemies and has since become an invasive pest. A number of methods have been developed to manage this millipede.
This lake has more than 100 important indigenous species such as the giant cichlid ("Petenia splendida"), crocodiles ("Crocodylus
" and "Crocodylus acutus"), jaguars ("Panthera onca"), Pumas ("Puma concolor"), White-tailed deer ("Odocoileus virginianus"), red brocket ("Mazana americana"), and several bird species, including parrots, toucans, and macaws. On its northeast shore is the "Cerro Cahui Protected Biotope", a natural reserve for butterflies is a reserve is home to toucans, spider monkeys ("Ateles geoffroyi"), howler monkeys ("Alouatta palliata", "Alouatta pigra"), and many other rain forest species.
The park and adjacent buffer zone (known as "Eco-región Lachuá") is noted for its high biodiversity. With 120 species of mammals (50% of mammal species found in Guatemala), 30-40 species of reptiles, 177 bird species (40% of bird species in Guatemala), and 36 fish species it is a sanctuary for a varied fauna population. These include fish like the diadromous tarpon ("Megalops atlanticus"), an ample variety of biogegraphically endemic Cichlid species, reptiles like Morelet's Crocodile ("Crocodylus
"), Orangebelly Swamp Snake ("Tretanorhinus nigroluteus"); and mammals, like the Jaguar ("Panthera onca"), Cougar ("Puma concolor"), Baird's tapir ("Tapirus bairdii"), the White-lipped Peccary ("Tayassu pecari"), Spotted Paca ("Agouti paca"), Red Brocket ("Mazama americana"), and Spix's Disk-winged Bat ("Thyroptera tricolor"), and various monkeys species including the endangered Guatemalan Black Howler ("Alouatta pigra").
Familiar species include the black Portuguese millipede ("Ommatoiulus
"). It is an invasive species in Australia known for its "plagues", when it emerges in swarms so massive that they stop trains, which crush them in huge numbers and make the rails slippery. Like some other millipedes, it produces a secretion with an obnoxious odor and tendency to stain floors when the swarms invade houses. Another well-known species is the striped millipede ("O. sabulosus"), which also swarms. In 2002 it flooded the streets of Dąbrowa Górnicza in Poland, "causing panic among the inhabitants". Swarms in France have consisted of "thousands of millions" of individuals, far too many to count. This species has also been known to stop trains.
Other fossil species from Africa are retained in "Crocodylus" and appear to be closely related to the Nile crocodile: namely "C. checchiai" from Miocene in Kenya, "C. anthropophagus" from Plio-Pleistocene Tanzania, and "C. thorbjarnarsoni" from Plio-Pleistocene Kenya. While "C. checchiai" was about the same size as the larger modern Nile crocodiles, and shared similar physical characteristics to the modern species, "C. anthropophagus" and "thorbjarnarsoni" were both somewhat larger, with projected total lengths of up to . Also "C. anthropophagus" and "thorbjarnarsoni" as well as "Rimasuchus" were all relatively broad-snouted as well as large, indicating a specialization at hunting sizeable prey, such as large mammals and freshwater turtles, the latter much larger than any in present-day Africa. It has been theorized that, based on morphology, time and placement of fossils, "C. checchiai" essentially forms a link between the Nile crocodile and today's neotropical crocodiles. The Nile crocodile apparently is more closely related to the crocodiles of the Americas, namely the American ("Crocodylus acutus"), Cuban ("Crocodylus rhombifer"), Morelet's ("Crocodylus
") and Orinoco crocodile ("Crocodylus intermedius"), than to the West African crocodile or other extant African crocodilians.
The bank is home to 14 species of the 23 crocodilian species living across the world, two of which are listed by the IUCN as critically endangered and three more as threatened. The 14 crocodile species available in the bank are mugger ("Crocodylus palustris"), salt-water crocodile ("Crocodylus porosus"), gharial ("Gavialis gangeticus"), tomistoma ("Tomistoma schlegelii"), American alligator ("Alligator mississippiensis"), Morelet's crocodile ("Crocodylus
"), spectacled caiman ("Caiman crocodilus"), West African dwarf crocodile ("Osteolaemus tetraspis"), Australian fresh water crocodile ("Crocodylus Johnsoni"), African slender-snouted crocodile ("Mecistops cataphractus"), dwarf caiman ("Paleosuchus palpebrosus"), yacare caiman ("Caiman yacare"), Nile crocodile ("Crocodylus niloticus") and the endangered Siamese crocodile ("Crocodylus siamensis"). The bank currently houses over 2,400 crocodiles and also many species of turtles, snakes, and lizards which are viewable by the public. The bank houses 12 endangered species of turtles and tortoises and 5 species of snakes, including king cobra ("Ophiophagus hannah"), Asian water monitors ("Varanus salvator salvator"), two species of pythons, and albino cobras. Of the 5,000 reptiles bred at the bank, 3,000 represent the native Indian species "Crocodylus palustris", known as muggers. One of the biggest attractions of the park is a fierce salt-water crocodile known as "Jaws III". This species, believed to be the biggest in southern Asia, is long and weighs over a ton. The bank is also going to get four new species of crocodiles. These are black caimans, smooth-fronted caimans, Cuban crocodiles and broad-snouted caimans. Anacondas will also appear at the bank. Since April, 2016 four Komodo dragons - three male, one female - have been added to the list of exhibits. The dragons were acquired from Bronx Zoo in New York.
