Went to campo by border with Jeff, Nate and Daniel looking for Copes Leopard Lizards and Baja Coachwhips. Sun finally came out and we walked a field know for copes Leo's but did not find any once again. Instead I found a juvenile baja coachwhip under a bush, at first thought tail was a whiptail or Leo but then saw the tan and black body and head with big eyes. It was so deep in bush that I could not get any vouchers and it retreated down a burrow when I tried to scare it out in open. Oh well still counting it as my lifer. We also saw whiptails, fencies and utas but did not take any pics.
On way back from campo we stopped and walked the flume, found a few fence lizards in the tunnel, Nate vouchered one and I vouchered other, Nate also vouchered an alligator lizard in the tunnel and we saw a few side blotched running around but no pics, also saw one granite spiny but no pics.
