The Baja California legless lizard gives birth to one to two live young, which develop as embryos inside the female’s body before being born. Breeding takes place during late spring and early summer, with the young born in September, October and even November (2) (3).
There is little information on the daily habits of the Baja California legless lizard. However, other species in the genus Aniella are known to be tolerant of relatively low temperatures allowing them to remain active in moist, cool, coastal habitats (4) (6).
Species of the genus Aniella primarily feed on insects, spiders and insect larvae (2).
