Foraging in rock garden bed.
Seen during a Biological Inventory Team Herp survey.
These lizards were abundant on the property. These were photographed around the ranch house where they were very common.
In leaf litter along a rocky drainage with sparse pinyon and juniper.
As I got to the top of Taco Peak my
friend and I found two lizards mating. We unfortunately scared them and the separated before I could get a picture.
There is a large colony of these living here.
