Found 5 today. But I only caught 2 and were able to get photographs of them. This was the first one I found. Instead of biting he pooped on me. . . then bit me.

I never would have noticed it if it hadn't loudly crashed through the vegetation off the side of the trail as I walked by. Then it stayed still until I walked away.

Description

I found this guy under the first rock I flipped. It was a different one from last week because it was smaller and had a longer tail. A man said they are everywhere in the field which gave me hope and he also said there are alligator lizards. This gave me hope of finding one. I'm going back to the field tomorrow. I wonder what I'll find.

Description

I lifted up a rock and saw some odd patterns on what I thought to be an alligator lizard. Heck no! It was something way better. A skink!!! It bit me too. Was also found with a western fence lizard.
