We know nothing about the natural history of this glorious animal. Losos & Greene (1988) and James et al (1992) examined the stomach contents of just three animals and found only orthopterans, a spider and a skink. Johnstone (1988) records that they forage for orthopterans. Gravid females containing two or three eggs have been collected between July and October.
There are no published reports regarding the care of this animal in captivity. They should probably be housed in the same manner as other long-tai led rock goannas.
