Abstract

We studied diets of 3 species of lizards in the genus Xenosaurus (X. grandis, X. newmanorum, X. platyceps) from México. In general, the 3 species ate a diversity of prey, but the most important prey were insects (particularly Coleoptera and Orthoptera). Mammal remains and plant material were found in the diet of X. newmanorum.
