Here's a picture of the lizard in question. Any help would be appreciated.
: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?
