Description

The weather was overcast, and the temperature was 62 degrees Fahrenheit.
I observed 2 columns of a wavy, black U shaped pattern on the lizard's back that extended to its tail. It had mix of dark gray, light gray, and light brown stripes running down its back. It had a white underbelly and a black horizontal line running across its green eyes.
Its habitat was mainly composed of grassy vegetation, leaf litter, and mud. It was surrounded by mixed trees, including loblolly pines and eastern red cedar.
The solitary lizard was climbing a tree before it was caught. It did not seem to be interacting with any other species.
