Real Desert Spiny Lizard In Jar
The desert spiny lizard is a small reptile native to the deserts of the southwestern United States and northern Mexico. These lizards are known for their distinctive appearance, which includes spiny scales along their backs and a bright blue tail. They are diurnal and prefer to bask in the sun during the day, using their spiny scales to help regulate their body temperature. Desert spiny lizards are also skilled climbers and can be found scaling rocks and other surfaces with ease. They primarily feed on insects, spiders, and other small invertebrates, but will occasionally eat smaller lizards or even plant matter. These lizards are an important part of the desert ecosystem, serving as both predator and prey for other animals. Despite their spiky appearance, desert spiny lizards are not harmful to humans and are often kept as pets in the United States.
