The Fiji banded iguana (Brachylophus fasciatus) is an arboreal species of lizard endemic to some of the southeastern Fijian islands. It is found in Tonga, where it was probably introduced by humans. It is one of the few species of iguanas found outside of the New World and one of the most geographically isolated members of the family Iguanidae.
The Pacific gecko or Pacific sticky-toed gecko (Hoplodactylus pacificus) is a species in the family Gekkonidae, endemic to the North Island and offshore islands of New Zealand.
The gold tegu (Tupinambis teguixin prev. Tupinambis nigropunctatus), also known as golden tegu, common tegu, black tegu, Colombian tegu and tiger lizard (on Trinidad), is a species of tegu. Gold tegus live in the tropical forests of northern and central South America, as well as Panama.
