Brief Summary

Most individuals of B. tristis were found roosting at night on small branches about 5–50 cm above the leaf litter within a limestone massif with deciduous dry forest. By far most specimens were found in a few small areas where the species was abundant, whereas it was rare in other, apparently similar habitats. One of the females laid two large eggs (5.9×3.7 mm resp. 5.8×3.5 mm diameter) in February. The two juveniles hatched 64 and 69 days after egg deposition at temperatures between 20–26°C. They measured 14 mm in total length. Eight days after hatching the weight of the older juvenile was 0.03 g.
