Very gravid looking female basking under a yucca.
Hanging out by the deck.
This is Eric's backyard lizard friend. I was not able to catch it to measure, but it was very cute sitting on the rocks, sunning itself and looking for bugs near the compost.
Found under some sheet metal but then bolted to some over growth. Another Sceloporus olivaceous was seen in the tin. It was much smaller. Temp in the low 70's but the previous night has lows In the bottom 40's. the day was sunny but windy and cool.
Found on the trunk of a tree that was surrounded by thorny bushes and was near a wood pile.
This sceloporus was underneath a rock eating some bugs. A narrow mouth toad (gastrophryne olivacea) was underneath the same rock eating ants.
