of the large lizard family (family (biology)), Iguanidae and is native to Mexico and Central America. The species range in size (total length, including the tail) from about 5 inches to well over one meter. The distinctive feature of this genus is presence of the enlarged, spiny scales on the tail. Ctenousaurs are generally omnivorous (omnivore), feeding on fruits, flowers, foliage, and small animals. Some members of this genus are popular as pets. At least two species

Archaeologist Lisa Lucero said, "the classic Maya really didn't go in for mass sacrifice. That was the Aztecs." Anthropology professor Karl Taube argued that, "We know the Aztecs did that level of killing. Their accounts speak of 20,000."

This huge distance coupled with the density of obsidian found at the site show that Tulum was a major center for the trading of obsidian. ref name

the site, Tulum appears to have been an important site for the worship of the Diving or Descending god. Tulum had an estimated population of 1,000 to 1,600 inhabitants. Tulum was first mentioned by Juan Díaz (Juan Díaz (Spanish conquistador)), a member of Juan de Grijalva's (Juan de Grijalva) Spanish expedition of 1518, the first Europeans to spot Tulum. The first detailed description of the ruins was published by John Lloyd Stephens and Frederick Catherwood in 1843 in the book ''Incidents of Travel in Yucatan''. As they arrived from the sea, Stephens and Catherwood first saw a tall building that impressed them greatly, most likely the great Castillo (Castillo de Chapultepec) of the site.

Howe, beginning in 1913. They worked to restore and open the public beaches. The work was continued by the Carnegie Institution from 1916 to 1922, Samuel Lothrop in 1924 who also mapped the site, Miguel Ángel Fernández in the late 1930s and early 1940s, William Sanders (William Sanders (archaeologist)) in 1956, and then later in the 1970s by Arthur G. Miller. Through these investigations done by Sanders and Miller it has been determined that Tulum was occupied during the late Postclassic period around AD 1200. The site continued to be occupied until contact with the Spanish was made in the early 16th century. By the end of the 16th century the site was abandoned completely. "The Ancient Maya", Robert J.

'''Tulum''' (Yucatec (Yucatec Maya language): ''Tulu'um'') is the site of a Pre-Columbian Maya (Maya civilization) walled city (Defensive wall) serving as a major port for Cobá. "Maya sites in Quintana Roo: Tulúm" (history), ''Athena Review'' Vol.2, no.1, 2003, webpage: AthenaPub-Tulum. The ruins are situated on tall cliffs, along the east coast of the Yucatán Peninsula on the Caribbean Sea in the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico. Tulum was one of the last cities inhabited and built by the Mayas; it was at its height between the 13th and 15th centuries and managed to survive about 70 years after the Spanish began occupying Mexico. Old World diseases brought by the Spanish settlers appear to have been the cause of its demise. One of the best-preserved coastal Maya sites, Tulum is today a popular site for tourists (Tourism).
