Camera Critters #276


I’ve gone to an area near where I live which I call “Lizard Lands” a number of times lately.  Each time I was unable to find a reptile of any type.

A couple of days ago, I found out why…a feral cat is hanging out in the area. 

So, I decided to walk the other side of the canyon and guess what I found!

It’s a juvenile Side-blotched Lizard.  It stuck around long enough for me to get a couple of photos and then it disappeared into the rocks.

Lucky for it, the cat hasn’t found his hiding place.

How interesting. I guess I wouldn't have thought about a cat being around causing them all to change their habits.
P.S. You know I love the lizards :-)

A beautiful lizard! Yes, he is lucky that a cat hasn't found him.

Excellent picture of this little creature!
