Night Lizards: Xantusiidae - Diet

eat species plants yellow

Many night lizards, like the Cuban night lizard, eat insects and spiders. The yellow-spotted night lizard also eats scorpions and other invertebrates (in-VER-teh-brehts), which are animals without backbones. Others, such as the island night lizard, eat at least some seeds and other bits of plants. Scientists are unsure if any species are strict vegetarians that eat only plants. Species in this family search for food where they live. For example, a yellow-spotted night lizard that lives in rotting logs usually looks there for its next meal.
