Frugivory and seed dispersal by the tegu lizard Tupinambis merianae Reptilia: Teiidae). Tegu lizards have a generalist diet and may play an important role as seed dispersers in semideciduous forests in southeast Brazil. We studied the frugivory and seed dispersal of tegu lizards using captive animals and offering wild fruits from a semideciduous forest. Thirty fruit species were eaten by the lizards in captivity, ranging from 0.81 to 10.0 cm (fruit diameter).
