Decided to go to Billy Creek Est Park this morning... Spotted a few things, although, it seems like they mow ALL the time out here... Imagine all of the cool bugs and critters that could be. :-/
The Texas spiny lizard (Sceloporus olivaceus) is a species of phrynosomatid lizard native to the south central United States, in the states of Texas and Oklahoma, and northeastern Mexico in the states of Coahuila, Nuevo León, Tamaulipas, and San Luis Potosí. They are quite common throughout their range, where they can be found in trees or on fences.
