Sandstone night lizards get their name from their habit of hiding inside sandstone crevices and burrows. Their white bodies are covered in large dark spots. They are active in the night and feed on ants, beetles and bees. Living high up at 1000 feet above the sea level, they breed in May and June with live young ones born in September.
