Description

Sagebrush Lizards were quite dense throughout Charlton Flats. I probably saw 40-50 over the course of the day. In contrast, I only saw 3-5 Western Fence Lizards. Interestingly, one of the Western Fence Lizards was observed using the same log as this Sagebrush Lizard about 1.5 hours after this sighting.

Approx. 12 cm long, on rock in dry wash. I'm not entirely sure of this ID. Could it be a Side-blotched Lizard?

Description

Could this be a sagebrush lizard? Would be my first if so. Seems to fit the details?

Rather reddish on the sides, though you can't see it well in the photos.
