Big Blue

This male Clark's Spiny lizard shows his true colors. You can tell he's a Clark's (and not a Desert Spiny) by the two bands (or bracelets) on his forearm. Desert Spiny lizards don't have those. Click on the photo for a larger view.

  1. Is it just me, or are they much more colorful this year? It seems like there's a lizard flashing his colors at me every time I turn around.
