I cannot tell the difference between this species and Western Fence Lizard. Wish I remembered more about the size...These two pictures are of the same lizard

Peggy heard something in a tree, then saw motion - then we watched this baby bear come trundling out of a tree. Never did see the mother - which was worrisome at the time.

I do not feel certain about this ID, as the distinctly giraffe-like pattern of the lizard in my picture is not what the Peterson Lizard Guide illustrates for this species.

This was seen during a pelagic bird trip out of Cape Hatteras in North Carolina, led by Brian Patteson. I forget if anyone on the boat was able to identify this to species. I assume that Scalloped Hammerhead is the most common Hammerhead Shark in that area.
