Habitat and Ecology
The species natural habitats consist of subtropical or tropical dry shrubland; subtropical or tropical seasonally wet or flooded lowland grasslands; and intermittent freshwater marshes. P. beiranus is found in two distinct and disjoint ecoregions: the Zambezian flooded grasslands (World Wildlife Fund & Hogan, 2007) and the Zambezian coastal flooded savanna. The warmest part of the range is in the Zambezian coastal flooded savanna, where the warmest month is February with a mean maximum temperature of 81.7 degrees Fahrenheit over the 109 period of record. Frost events are infrequent, and may occur several days per year.
Further field research is needed to identify the species preferred habitat; to date, most observations have been made in grassland areas that flood intermittently subsequent to rains. Its adaptability to human altered habitats is not well known.
