Description

Observed basking at dusk on a drain cover. Largest allie I've seen in the area. First I've seen outside of my apartment courtyard in years. Pretty busy area, many cars all day and night, this particular building is surrounded by busy streets on all sides. Lots of English Ivy at this location.

This big guy was spotted by 12th grader Liam Spires hiding underneath a computer desk. He was very lively and bit his captor! We released him into the neighborhood.

I was going back through the gate and the lizard with spotted head was about shoulder high, right in front of me! I got the camera and got a pic. Then he was gone but I think he was in the nearby herb garden. I got him some green inchworm caterpillars that are all over the nicotiana (white flower plant for hummingbirds) and put them in the herb garden. He came out to eat some caterpillars, then explored a snail I dropped onto the patio, crossed it, and finally went back up into the herb garden, where the oregano is, then up about 3 feet into another planter. He has a long, intact tail and bright colors.

Poor thing lost his tail recently. He is fairly small, brick shown for size reference, brick is about 8 and a half inches tall. He was just under the cap of the brick. Later I offered him some green inchworm caterpillars but he didn't want them he crawled into a flower 6 pack compartment and I put him near the herb garden and offered him pill bugs. Eventually he crawled out and walked slowly till he was under winter savory plant.

One of the alligator lizards laid eggs in the tank a week ago and we had to clean it so I decided to take them home otherwise they would have been thrown away.

Description

Scrambled for cover in the side yard / hummingbird garden and area where one was seen up in the tomato plants months ago. this was the only picture I was able to get of him. The warm weather has them moving very fast and he ran with his whole body and tail swerving from side to side.
