Description

The only live specimen of an Uta that we found during what turned out to be a very cool and slightly damp day. It was spotted near the entrance of a ground squirrel burrow, but darted into the surrounding grasses and evaded capture.

Description

I guess a photo of an Uta in Ward County is about as uncommon as a photo of a creosote bush, but this one looks a little different (in my limited experience).

Description from Wikipedia

The common side-blotched lizard (Uta stansburiana) is a species of side-blotched lizard found on the Pacific Coast of North America. It is notable for having a unique form of polymorphism wherein each of the three different male morphs utilizes a different strategy in acquiring mates. The three morphs compete against each other following a pattern of rock, paper, scissors, where one morph has advantages over another but is outcompeted by the third.
