There's a type of iguana... I forget what it's called exactly but I think that there's the word "Island" in it's name and supposedly, this species is worth $5000+.

That solid white or leucistic nile monitor is now $125,000 which i trhink puts it behind the desert-ghost ball python in value thats as far as morphs go. As for non-morph animals i think the most expensive lizard would be the baja island blue iguana which is not even an animal you can buy so it would be the cuban iguana and the most expensive non morph snake would be a boleens python. I think. Also the leucistic spectacled caimen is probably upo there to. Plus Bob Clarks leucistic burm is probably worth a mint.

Also, there is a difference between what an animal is worth, and the price of an animal. They had that nile monitor up for 1,000,000... doesn't mean it's WORTH 1,000,000 (as it obviously wasn't). Just something to keep in mind; an animal has to be sold at a certain price to be worth that amount of money. I can try and sell a corn snake for 10,000,000,000$.... doesn't mean its the true value.

As for snakes, just talk to Corey Woods. He probably has a breeding pair of whatever the most expensive one is

What about the Tartura Lizard of Tasmania. The nearest closest relative to the Dinosaurs. Surely it would fetch a good price if available.

In my opinion you would probly look to the ball python morphs in the states like the plattys that Ralph Davis has or some of the snakes from Nerd and other top breeders in the states.

Do you mean tuatara? They can be found in New Zealand.

"Tuataras are related to an ancient order of reptiles that died out at least 60 million years ago."

Another interesting note is that they are not lizards!
Check out the June 2003 issue of "Reptiles" Magazine for an article on them and where I got the above quote.
