A picture of the creature would surely help
There are lots of species with spiny tails.
:I got this lizard two months ago at a reptile expo in town. He looked very sickly but he was cheap so I bought him and have since brought him back from the brink of death.
:Anyway When I got him the lady who obviously knew nothing about reptile care told me it was a "Desert Spiny Uromastyx" which I later discovered did not exist.
:Anyway I was wondering if anyone could help me out with this. Here's a basic description of what I have:
:-Dark Brown coloration with very dark almost black streaks like zig-zags going from one side of him to the other.
:-About 8 inches long
:-its nose sticks out past its eyes about 3/4 of an inch unlike any Uros I have seen.
:-It has five toes on all limbs
:-Its belly is a very light tan color all over
:-It likes to hide most of the time
:Thats the best description I can give it. Are there any other lizards other than Uromastyx that have spiky tails?
