Found this lizard dead in the bird cage at my grandparents house, it was stuck in the wiring and was covered in ants before we removed it. I believe that this was a male because of its prominent femoral pores & the deep blue color of the scales under the neck and on the stomach.

Observation and photos sent to me by a neighbor, Y. Jin.

I questioned further and received the additional photos and following explanation. What's neat, too, is that the Elgaria has its tail in the first photos, but then at some point, dropped the tail, and the snake also ate the drop tail once it was done with the Elgaria.

"And YES the snake won, but it took some time since the lizard did indeed bite the snake as well! Also after the snake finally swallowed the lizard, it ate the lizard's tail which had fallen off as well."

Young of the year (2018) animal in classic ambush posture approximately 3 feet off the ground in an oak. There were numerous spiny lizards (Sceloporus) around which I'm assuming is a major component of the diet of young C. helleri. I have yet to encounter this species in a tree before. I'm wondering if it's worth writing up for herp review or other natural history publication.
