The Bezy’s night lizard is peculiar to central Arizona of the United States of America. It is found in a small group of mountains with elevations between 730m and 5,800m.
The Bezy’s night Lizard inhabits rocky slopes and boulder fields in the upland Sonoran Desert-scrub of Arizona and other shrubby territories. It can also be found in conifer woodlands. Most of their lifetime is spent in the shelter of rocks. They seldom leave their shelter during day time. They maintain their internal temperature by basking close to sun-warmed rocks or to the sun-warmed edge of the fissure. They are extremely secretive. The Bezy’s night lizard feeds on a variety of insects such as beetles, flies, ants and spiders. They mate during spring and their offsprings are born during summer.p
They are small species with a length ranging between 38 and 70mm from their snout to their vent. They are flat-headed and smooth-skinned with dull yellow pigmentation, although it has dark spots or splotches on its dorsal surface. While the scales on the belly and the tail are larger and rectangular, the scales on the head are plate-like and smooth. They do not have lids in their eyes and their pupils are vertically oval-shaped.
