Description

65F, Humid, Densely Overcast

A very small individual, 4cm SVL. Found under a rock (7"x7"x4"); very sluggish, didn't even try to run when I flipped the rock and picked it up. After being held it warmed up a bit and when put down ran off in short spurts of about 10".

2 other similarly small individuals were found under nearby rocks! This trail is gravel and sand.

Description

Common whiptail spotted off of Lake Travis in Leander, TX.

Was seen with another whiptail and was presumably either courting or being courted. Was very fast and fled at any sudden movement.

Due to region and distribution, it was identified as A. gularis.
