Ameiva ameiva, Cnemidophorus lemniscatus, and Kentropyx striatus reproduce seasonally in Amazonian savanna near Alter do Chão, Brazil. Most egg deposition occurs during the wet season but most development of gonads and growth of juveniles occur during the height of the dry season. Relative fat-body size varies little throughout the year and there is no apparent correlation between fat-body size and gonad development.
