ABSTRACT A crocodile lizard, Shinisaurus crocodilurus, was examined due to anorexia and lethargy. Radiographs revealed a soft tissue mass cranial to the heart on the left side. Necropsy revealed a neoplastic mass in the location of the thyroid gland, which was diagnosed histologically as a thyroid adenocarcinoma.
