Collared Lizard

Collared Lizards and Chuckwallas were along the ridge and summit area of Ord. We released this little guy unharmed of course.

Re: Nice...

Check out the new pictures I put up. There is a one of his face. We saw a one that was double the size of this one.

Greetings from AZ !

Just a factoid. Collared lizards can rise up and run on their hind legs, which allows them
to run faster. Coupling speed with large heads
and powerful jaws makes them formidable
predators on smaller lizards, which they
will consume without mercy!
