Whiptail lizard

Aspidoscelis sp.


Whiptail lizards live on land and are active during the day. They are insectivores, primarily feeding on insects. Most interesting about the Aspidoscelis genera is that these lizards are parthenogenic - reproducing without the eggs being fertilized. Certain species have female only populations.


Southern U.S. - South America. Arid, semi-arid environments.
