A very small species of Mimulus, perhaps? Whole plant only 10 cm tall, tops. Found in Stony Creek campground, along the Generals Highway just outside of Sequoia National Park.

Might be a bit low for M. whitneyi. Thoughts?

Probably a barking frog (Eleutherodactylus augusti), just inside the entrance to the cave. Well, that was my ID back in 2006. Actually, it also looks a lot like this pic of a Cliff Chirping Frog (Eleutherodactylus marnockii). Thoughts?

Pretty sure this is Callisaurus draconoides, which is a fantastic name. Perfect camo for that white gravel. When it ran, it held its tail up in the air.

This was from a x-country road trip I did a while back. Dave found it outside the hotel room. Observed in Willcox, AZ. About 7-8 cm from head to the end of the abdomen (not counting insane antennae). I never reall got a good ID on it, though it looks like many pics of the Palo Verde Root-borer.

Xantusia v. vigilis. Caught this little guy running across some open gravel, which seemed mad. The zebra-tailed lizards have big longs legs for getting above the hot surfaces and running fast, but night lizards definitely do not.
