Kentropyx calcarata , commonly known as the striped forest whiptail , is a species of lizard endemic to South America. Kentropyx Calcarata commonly participate in communal nesting. While no clear reasoning has been found, a recent study suggested that communally incubated eggs took up less water while also yielding larger offsprings. Kentropyx calcarata specimens are sometimes plagued by the parasitic protist , Plasmodium lepidoptiformis.

No other Teiinae has keeled ventrals also in Dracaena or relatively small, keeled antebrachials small antebrachials that are either keeled or smooth occur in Callopistes and the various genera of Tupinambinae. Unlike other Teiinae, Kentropyx lacks a subocular keel or has a weak keel restricted to the first and second subocular, but not extending to the long subocular below the eye.
