Glossary of terms used within this website.

Snake's venom and its effects.

   Grass Lizard (Acanthodactylus sp./ Acanthodactylus grandis?)

Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Reptilia
Order: Squamata
Family: Lacertidae
Genus: Acanthodactylus
Species: sp.
Year: 1878?
Distribution: Tanzania

Diet: Earth Worms, Wax Worms, and other grubs. I am yet to see them eat a Cricket.

Adult size: 18- 20cm long.

Their natural habitat includes: sandy shores, pastureland, and plantations. Many of Acanthodactylus species are threatened by habitat loss. They prefer to be kept around 24- 28*C. A basking spot must be provided with a UVB light. They love to sit between the crevices of rocks, and absorb heat from either rocks or the heat light. It is not recommended to offer them a Heat Rock, as it may burn their skinny feet. I prefer to keep them on Reptile Carpet as it ensures that they always have a good grip under them, and does not let the grubs burrow in to it.
