Desert Spiny Lizard
Meet my li'l buddy. He's a Desert Spiny Lizard who lives in our back yard. He's about 6 - 7 inches long and very curious about his surroundings. He often comes up to the patio door to check me out while I'm typing at my desk. When he does his characteristic push-ups, he reveals his bright blue throat. This spring I was sorry to see he'd lost part of his tail but it is regenerating. We enjoy this guy and are grateful he's doing his part to keep the yard bug-free.
