Volume 16, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 1011-5498



The range of X. princeps is confined to a narrow band along the whole inland escarpment of SWA/Namibia, extending northwards into southern Angola. X. princeps are diurnal and reduce their exposure to high ambient temperatures through special behaviour (e.g. using the tall as a parasol). They live singly or in family groups of up to three (four?) animals.
