I'm going to write this again because something went amiss with the 
last message. 
As you amy have begun to read, I have been given two nematodes from 
lizards. One appears to be a Strongyloides and was taken from the 
stool of green iguana. The other is perhaps more interesting: it was 
found in the subcutaneous tissue of an "emerald lizard." That may 
suggest that the worm was in an unusual host. Does anyone know anything 
about nematodes of reptiles?
