How it survives in the desert

It survives on eating ants and nothing else.It's body is covered with small groves which lead to its can also absorb liquids through its skin ,that way, if any water falls on him or her will not be wasted.Getting back to the ants,they only eat one type of ant (Iridomyrex floipes a small black ant)but,if they are scarce it'll eat 1 or 2 different types of spieces.It's usually yellow or reddish brown. can change colour depending on the colour of the soil it's standing on,because of this it can camoflage from even the deadliest animals in Australia!
