General aspects

Its combination of colours allows it to perfectly camouflage itself on sandy bottoms, and thereby go unnoticed by potential predators. During the breeding season, females lay around fifteen eggs, each in a resistant capsule up to nine centimetres long. Incubation takes place for between 4 and 5 months.
