A Desert Night Lizard that was found within the dried, hanging leaves of a Yucca tree, in the late afternoon to early evening hours, as the desert began to cool for the evening.
With Yucca brevifolia.
A fortuitous find. While pulling off an old Mylar balloon that was tangled on some fallen Joshua Tree limbs, this little chap was underneath. After removing the debris, I replaced the limb as snugly as possible.
Habitat: 12 miles north of Kelso, higher altitude, at an unimproved campground within the Mojave National Preserve. > Found under a dead Joshua Tree trunk, dropped its tail...
Found under yucca litter on a Merritt College herpetology class .
