In this video segment from Outdoor Nevada, host Brian Wignall asks herpetologist Jim Moore about two desert-dwelling lizards: the Western banded gecko and the desert night lizard. Unlike most other lizards, these lizards are predominantly nocturnal, sheltering during the hottest part of the day and becoming active at night. Both lizards have vertical rather than rounded pupils, a characteristic that helps them see better in low-light conditions. Among the gecko’s unique adaptations is its cat-like hunting style, while the desert night lizard’s body changes color according to the background, allowing it to blend in and escape sighting by predators and prey alike.
