Description

What first struck me about this lizard was how smooth it looked. That may have biased me too much towards the more interesting of the 2 options (i.e. not a western fence), but the details seem to match in favour of sagebrush.

(Somewhere...)

Description

In the "Clarno Unit" area of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument.

Gravid female digging a nest for her eggs. Within 1 hr, I observed her dig the hole deep enough for her entire body (including most of her tail) to be hidden.

She was not noticeably alarmed by the presence of several people standing nearby.
