Sunday Sandy Snapshot #19 Leptien’s Spiny-tailed Lizard (Uromastyx aegyptia leptieni) is not uncommon in the UAE and Oman. Preferring gravelly areas, we snapped this one in Liwa in August 2013. These creatures are herbivores and never need to drink water! 2 thoughts on “Sunday Sandy Snapshot #19” sungkom says: May 14, 2015 this is great shot. Marina Bruce says: May 17, 2015 Thank you! Unusual to see them on the sand, it’s normally gravel. Glad you liked it! Comments are closed.
