Womas live in some pretty inhospitable back country, but are remarkably adapted to their environment. Like most desert reptiles, it is nocturnal and shelters by day in hollow logs, under spinifex tussocks, and in animal burrows to avoid the sweltering sun. If necessary it take refuge by excavating a burrow. When moving across scorching sand it has the ability to raise parts of its body to minimize contact.
In some areas of their range, such as the Pilbara and the Barkly Tablelands, the Woma is sympatric with the Black-headed python, Apidites melanocephalus.
One of the most popular reptiles in herpetoculture, Womas are beautiful and easy to care for.
