The Northern Curly-tailed Lizard, also called the Cuban
Curly-tailed, is one on several species of curly-tailed
lizards prevalent throughout the Carribbean. In addition to
Cuba, it is native to the Bahamas, Caymans and Honduras.
The curly tail, which can curl right up in several circles,
is used as a threat (territorial and anti-predator) and in
It will also play dead as a defence against some predators
that eat only live food.
