Description

So cool! This alligator lizard has been hanging out around my porch/in the planter area in my front yard. Today I was able to get a full body shot and much more! While I was photographing some insects I happened to look over and noticed the lizard's face poking out from behind the sheet. Mostly as a joke I grabbed one of the beetles from the sheet and slowly brought it up to the lizard. Much to my surprise, it ate it right out of my hand! I repeated the process a few times before it turned and ran the other direction.

I'm guessing it's 16 inches long. A very large lizard.

Description

Near tomato plant where bamboo was eradicated a few years ago, a lizard that has not lost her tail and she is longer than the distance of 4 diamonds of the fence. She is very wide and moved slowly in the comfortably warm weather. Gravid? She is about 50 ft west of the anise hyssop under which a couple was found weeks ago.
