Kentropyx calcarata , commonly known as the striped forest whiptail , is a species of lizard endemic to South America. Kentropyx Calcarata commonly participate in communal nesting. While no clear reasoning has been found, a recent study suggested that communally incubated eggs took up less water while also yielding larger offsprings. Kentropyx calcarata specimens are sometimes plagued by the parasitic protist , Plasmodium lepidoptiformis.
