Range Description

This species is known only from Mossamedes District in south-western Angola, although its range is largely unknown.

Habitat and Ecology

It is associated with granitic inselbergs in dry, sandy areas. Its breeding habits are unknown, but reproduction presumably takes place in water.


There is very little information on its population status, and only a few specimens are known, presumably because of lack of herpetological survey work within its range.

Population Trend
