Found in temperate sub-tropical to tropical areas and particularly habitat bordering river, creek beds and drainage systems.
They shelter inside shallow ground burrows that often have more than one entrance.
They feed on a variety of insects like ants, insect larvae and low flying bugs, grasshoppers etc.
Females can lay anything up to 15 eggs from about October to late summer.
Under favorable conditions, they can have several clutches in a single season.
Not such a commonly kept species in Western Australia, this maybe more the case that they haven't been widely collected for the pet trade as of yet. Wild collected specimens do not seem to do very well in small enclosures and suffer stress easily and therefore only captive raised specimens should be considered.
All native reptiles in W.A remain protected under the W.A Wildlife Conservation Act (1950)
