The Uromastyx is a genus of lizard whose members are better-known as Spiny-tailed lizards, uros, mastigures, or dabb lizards. Uromastyx are primarily herbivorous, but occasionally eat insects, especially when young. They spend most of their waking hours basking in the sun, hiding in underground chambers at daytime or when danger appears.

Uromastyx tend to establish themselves in hilly, rocky areas with good shelter and accessible vegetation. Uromastyx inhabit a range stretching through most of North Africa, the Middle East and across south-central Asia and into India. This area spreads across 5000 miles and 30 countries. They occur at elevations from sea level to well over 3000 feet. Uromastyx tend to bask in areas with surface temperatures of over 120 F.

Here you may post messages or questions pertaining to all aspects and issues regarding the keeping, breeding, health, and conservation of Uromastyx.
