Jayakar’s Oman lizard is active during the day (2) (6) (8) (9) (10). Somewhat unusually for a lizard in the Lacertidae family, the diet of this species includes a relatively large amount of plant material, such as leaves, fruits and seeds (8), although it also takes insects (8) (11) and perhaps small lizards (4).
Relatively little is known about the breeding behaviour of Jayakar’s Oman lizard. However, as in related species, it is likely that males perform courtship rituals to attract a mate, as well as threat displays to warn away rival males (9). In captivity, a female Jayakar’s Oman lizard has been known to produce five clutches of eggs a year, with seven to nine eggs per clutch. The clutches were laid at intervals of 6 to 21 weeks, and the eggs took about 4 months to hatch, producing relatively large young (11).
As in the blue-tailed Oman lizard (O. cyanura), breeding activity in Jayakar’s Oman lizard is likely to peak in the autumn months (11).
