Spiny-tailed monitors are diurnal ground-dwellers that are usually found under rock slabs and in rock crevices. They prey on beetles, cockroaches, geckos, and other small lizards. They sit there and wait for prey, then catch them.
Egg production Edit
These lizards lay up to 18 eggs that they put into a self-dug tunnel. The babies hatch after 3-5 months.
