Description

Young alligator lizard in my backyard. I try to make areas of spent bark for a safe area from the neighborhood cats. I was weeding when I spotted this one.

My guess is actually Southern given the yellowish eye, but I don't know, maybe it's light brown.

E. multicarinata are prevalent on the eastern side of the range. I have collected E. coerulea consistent with this sub-adult, by the marsh.
