Specifics of trophic relationships of eremias grammica in the eastern kara kum turkmen ssr ussr

The remains of invertebrates from 52 excrements of Eremias grammica have been analysed. The mass of not flying arthropods caught by lizards on the ground surface is 32,4%, flying and jumping is 5,5%, digging out of sand is 62,1% of general mass of arthropods. According to mass the basis of nutrition consists of Tenebrionidae (imago), Blattoidea, Lepidoptera (larvae), Curculionidae (imago). The lizards digest 51% of dry mass of eaten animals.
