Temperament:

Northern Curly Tails
are quite bold but are initially nervous of handling. With time and food they
will happily accept being picked up on their terms. An interesting feature of
the species is when threatened they will repeatedly curl their tails to intimidate
and confuse the predator before fleeing.

These lizards have
huge personalities and are very active, using every inch of their enclosure. At
night they will burrow to sleep so a good depth of substrate is ideal.
