Francisco Llauger (Ecology, Evolution and Behavior Graduate Program)

“Through Claws and Scales: Reptiles, Conservation, and Iguanas of the Caribbean”

Reptiles are often among the most misunderstood animals walking, crawling, and slithering across our planet, but I’ve always seen nothing but fascinating beings that deserve our respect. I’ve led my life trying to study these creatures, and now I invite you to take that journey with me as we look at why these animals need our protection and look at a unique group of lizards nestled across the white sand beaches of the Caribbean-Cyclura, the most endangered lizards in the world!

Q&A will follow the talk.

This event is held outside, so please dress for the weather and bring a chair or blankets to sit on. Talk will be moved indoors in case of inclement weather.


Neighborhood Science, an offshoot of Science Under the Stars, presents family-friendly talks at Austin Public Library branches across Austin.

Location: Howson Branch Library, 2500 Exposition Blvd, Austin, Texas 78703
