there are different species, ur better off looking for specific species before looking for information.

if u look on wikipedia there is a long list of the different subspecies when u search for uromastyx

i like the spiny tailed ones :p i think its more a case of that they generally dont get water in the wild though, not that they dont need water, but in the wild they get water from their food.
