    Well aware of the Mt. Laurel pop. which has been studied. Some of the animals are chipped. This record will get more scrutiny.

    I'm sure you know about the population across the river in Mt. Laurel, NJ. I've seen them there and on LI. Cool, but worrisome because of the three other lizard species in the Mt. Laurel area. So far, they have remained as inhabitants of urban/suburban areas. Let's hope that continues.

    Russ Burke from Hofsta might be interested. Check out this article about what he did to get info on the animals in NJ.
