Zeus

Species: Sudan Plated

Zeus

Active during the day, these lizards can be found in rocky desert areas, usually escaping the hot sun by hiding in rocky crevices or underground.  As the name suggests, the heavy armour like plating helps to protect them from predation.  It feeds mainly on insects but also on a wide range of vegetation and even small vertebrates such baby rodents and other small lizards.
