Notes:
1. The number of extant species identified is constantly changing and usually increasing in number.
2. Weight information was often lacking in references for the lighter weight reptiles.
3. Weights in the Adult Ave. Wt. Used column:
a. Where weight ranges were given in references, the average of the weights were used.
b. Where maximum weights only were given, 75 percent of the maximum weights were used.
c. When only length information was available as indicated by e in the table, rough average weights were estimated based on the lengths and weights of other reptiles of similar size in the same group (order, suborder, family, etc.). There are some exceptions to this.
d. In a few cases where both weight and length information were not available and a number was necessary to complete calculations, then a rough estimate of average weight was assumed as indicated by f in the table.
