NORTHERN CURLY-TAILED LIZARD
The Northern Curly-tailed Lizards, as their name suggests, are identified by their tail curling upwards into a spiral, which helps deter predators from a distance. With a length of up to 26 cm (10 in) from snout to tail, they display a variety of bands and stripes on their pale yellow and greenish-brown body. They are omnivorous, feeding on a variety of prey such as flowers, seeds, insects, and spiders.
