Attaining 18 cm this lizard is found in coastal and near coastal areas of NSW and Queensland, and in a small part of far north Victoria.
This lizard usually occurs in rocky habitats, where it shelters under rock slabs in especially dug burrows. In winter months, large numbers of these lizards may be caught by lifting small rocks on rock outcrops in bush country; particularly around Sydney.
Many specimens appear to be an intermediate host for internal parasites that can adversely affect snakes and other animals that eat the lizards; Particularly Pentastomids/Lung Parasites. This fast moving lizard may be found during the day in warmer weather in pursuit of it's insect food. Lays about five eggs in spring, which hatch some 70 days later.
Hatchlings measure about 6 cm.
