Abstract: Diet and reproduction in Tiliqua rugosa konowi were examined by dissection of museum specimens. Tiliqua r. konowi attains a smaller size than other races of T. rugosa. Adult males and females were similar in size. Reproduction was seasonal, both testis length and ovarian follicle diameter peaking in early Spring (September). One or two young were born in late summer ( February). The diet included large quantities of both plant and animal material, as in other subspecies, and contained a high proportion of Acanthocarpus preissii seeds and piedish beetles (Tenebrionidae) in spring and summer.
