Brief Summary

Read full entry


Few studies of the spineless forest lizard have taken place and little is therefore known of its biology. Unlike most lizards belonging to the Agamidae family, this species spends most of its time in the trees, rather than on the ground (6) (7). Agamids are diurnal and visually-orientated, with the crests and other ornamentation thought to serve as important signals in establishing and maintaining territories or in courtship (6) (8). Most agamids feed on insects and other small animals, although a few also feed on plant matter as adults (8). Like the vast majority of agamids, the spineless forest lizard is oviparous, or egg-laying (6).
