Formerly known as Sauromalus obesus, but now officially known as Sauromalus ater. This fine female (I think) was basking and posing for us in a remote canyon in Death Valley National Park. At first, she was timid, at one point running under a rock to hide. But after a while, she realized we had no desire to eat a lizard. We were far into the wilderness, but we still had a turkey sandwich and plenty of Clif shots, after all. 08 March 2009.
