Description

Barton Creek Greenbelt
75F, 65% Hum, Sunny (bright, but by this point, direct sunlight blocked by canyon walls)

5cm SVL, out moving around in leaf litter under moderately thick tree but relatively thin shrub cover just off the path, about 40ft back from creek. Here, the path is relatively solid packed earth, and there are not sheer cliff walls nearby as in some areas of the greenbelt - it is open and forested. There are also fewer loose rocks distributed through the path and surrounding land than in some nearby areas, and while there is a grade towards the water it is not steep. One of many individuals of this species we saw out and about during this trip.
