Text Appearing Before Image:
New data on the Hierro Giant lizard 433 Roque Chico to throw dynamite from the top down on to the shoal of fish (a boat below collected thereafter the dead fish). I was told that prickly pear cacti was planted on top for food and "refreshment", but all were eaten by locusts during a great plague (see Cañizo, 1954) when they were less than 40 cm high.
Text Appearing After Image:
Fig. 4: Photo of a model of the Lizard of Salmor, G. simonyi, made by W. Bischoff with sculptor's plaster. Photo W. Bischoff. The specimens of Gallotia simonyi The first specimens known to science were collected by Oscar Simony, an astronomer and voyager, who visited the Canary Islands several times (1888, 1889 and 1890). His first and only stay in El Hierro was short, two days, but on the second, the 29th of August, 1889, he collected (Simonyi 1892, p. 397) three specimens of the Giant lizard (preserved in the Naturhistorisches Museum Wien: o* NMW 16256, 9 NMW 16255 and 9 NMW 16254). One can be almost sure that Oscar Simony knew about the lizards on the Rock as they were mentioned in scientific literature by von Fritsch (1867, 1870) and more precisely on the smaller Rock, by Manrique y Saavedra5) (1873) and Viera y Clavijo6' (1886) in his Dictionary of Natural History. Simony forwarded those specimens to his Professor of Herpetology, Franz Steindachner, who established the species as Lacerta Simonyi (fig. 4). The original description is very short and was published rapidly that same year (19 December 1889). Steindachner gives a more detailed description of simonyi in a global work on the herpetological fauna of the Islands (1891), but this description relates mainly to Gran Canarian specimens, which were posteriorly segregated by Schenkel (1901) as stehlini. Most old literature references to simonyi refer in reality to stehlini (i. e. Siebenrock 1894, Wevers 1909, Fejérváry 1914, etc).
