NPS photo by Cathy Bell
Female, possibly gravid, her burrow is under the rock. May be the same lizard I've seen and recorded previously this year.
Basking on rock at 1811hrs (93 degrees F). Side of Highway 1. No photo, lizard ran to burrow under Mesquite Tree.
The collared lizards comprise the genus Crotaphytus. They are a group of small to medium-sized predators indigenous to arid environments of the southwestern regions of North America.
