Description

Several observed over a period of hours. Unlike fence lizards in the area, these lizards would run from you and then keep running as opposed to running a short distance and stopping. Very fluid motion - reminded me of alligator lizards but their coloration does not look same. Weather was very hot (~100 F.).
