Knob-Scaled Lizards: Xenosauridae

Knob-scaled Lizards And People

At least one population of Newman's knob-scaled lizard lives in the cracks of a rock wall on a plantation, but for the most part the lizards in this family and people hardly ever see one another. Since the lizards seem to make their homes in very small areas and travel very little from those areas, however, farming or other human activity that might destroy their habitat could mean disaster for the lizards, which would likely be unable to find a new home nearby.
