Description

Found under rock less than 300 yrds from beach/ocean. Found under rock Sandy Salt Marsh area.

Habitat currently preserved.

Update 2012
Scratch the preserved part, a visit in 2011 reveled that the habitat this lizard was found in was DESTROYED to "restore" a portion of the wetlands area.

So frustrating to see this type of habitat management and "restoration" work.

Other individuals have been found in the reserve as well.

"Exposed while I was removing light plant debris on top of fine sandy soil. First one that I have
