Found throughout most drier parts of Australia, this lizard is called a 'sand swimmer', because of the way it appears to move through loose sand. It is most abundant in, but not restricted to sandy localities.
Generally crepuscular(dusk active), and nocturnal, this species fossicks around for its insect food on the ground surface. In the Pilbara of Western Australia, large numbers of these lizards are found inside the giant termite mounds, when opened up during the day. It is not known weather these lizards utilize the termite mounds principally for food, shelter or both. It is not known weather these given specimens leave the mounds every night in search of food elsewhere. Captive specimens become highly excitable when feeding.
Little known, this is a live bearing species.
