Uncatalogued Lizard Species

Scientists are always on the lookout for new, uncatalogued animal species. A new lizard named Leiolepis Ngovantrii has been discovered in rural Vietnam. The creature was "discovered" when scientist Ngo Van Tri called a colleague in to examine them because all the lizards appeared to be female. Later testing confirmed the lizards were all female and were reproducing perfect clones of themselves through parthenogenesis. The tests were delayed because despite the shop owner's promise to keep some lizards for the researchers, "the owner wound up getting drunk, and grilled them all up for his patrons... so when we got there, there was nothing left." That is correct, the uncatalogued lizards were catalogued on the Vietnamese menu where the locals routinely ate them.
