Found, noosed, and released on the Hastings Reserve property while it was sunning itself. Three to four other S. occidentalis and one Uta stansburiana were also spotted during our quick search.
Houses an incredible array of creatures...

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.).
A couple blue-tailed individuals near second canyon. A week ago.
~300 moved from Laguna to Soto Springs (Oak Ridge property), because Laguna dried up for the first time ever documented.
