Sagebrush Lizard (Sceloporus graciosus), Mendocino National Forest, Glenn County, California - 14 May 2013. About 10 cm in length. At 3,600 feet elevation. Thanks to "hellihooks" at the California chapter of the NA field herping forum for the species ID - his/her comment was "White on back of legs, rather than yellow, and scales too fine to be a Fence". Submitted data point to HERP here: www.naherp.com/viewrecord.php?r_id=146513
Yes! My first confidently identified Sagebrush Lizard. Didn't look like a Western fence to me and doing some research I'm convinced - check this page and the head comparison in particular
