The Tuatara is a native lizard of New Zealand, and it is only there that it can be found.  It has hardly evolved since the time of the dinosaurs, and this is apparent in its appearance.  This magnificent animal is endangerd since human influence has affected this animals life of solitude.  No longer is it isolated but now in danger of being lost forever.

It is hoped that the preservation of these creatures will be attained, because to loose such a fascinating animal would be a great loss.  We would be loosing a piece of time and history.
