dc.description.abstractDuring 1990 the distributions of the endemic lizard (Urosaurus auriculatus^ and the feral cat (Felts catus) of Socorro Island were observed and scats of the last species were collected. A total of 46 cat scats were analyzed, showing that lizards were an important prey item, varying in frequency from 33.33% in February to 66.66% in November. Because of the impact of sheep (Ovis aries) on the natural vegetation and because of the impact of cat predation, we recommend that a plan be developed for the removal of exotic species and the restoration of natural vegetation to Socorro Island.en_US
