This beauty was hanging out in the woodpile this afternoon.
Another great bug eater.
This confiding lizard stayed pretty close to me as I raked and spread some mulch and leaf litter in the back yard. He enjoyed the munchies I was serving up.
Approx. 9" in length
Rescued from cat
Young Texas Spiny Lizard making use of its camouflage on a Redbud tree in the garden.
In the second photo you can see we held a measuring tape next to it to gauge its size - 3 and 1/2 inches from nose to tail.
