Eastern Collared Lizards

All photos byNed Harris 4/25/2012
One goal of the last nature walk this season with Ned and Friends of Ned (FoN) was to find Eastern Collared Lizards. We were thrilled to see three. First up was the female above.

This male was a bit more skittish and the photographers had to make their way quickly and quietly. If you had a lizard pattern scanner, you could easily tell that both photos above are of the same lizard. Contrast with the male in the photos below, who was our third and final Eastern Collared Lizard for the walk.

Have a smart phone and know how to use it? Have a heart for herps of all stripes? See HerpCount.org and learn how you can contribute to research on herps right here in Tucson. We've got some of the world's best herpetologists here and, of course, the world's best herps!
