Also known as the snow lizard, not much is known about its ecology. Although, it is believed to be viviparous, making it one of the few lizards in the world that gives birth to live young. When it feels threatened, the lizard will bury itself in the sand, where it camouflages rather well.
They rely on their ability to run to move around and are usually diurnal, meaning they are most active during the day for their feeding and mating. Even though not much information is available about this species, its numbers are considered stable throughout its range.
