The sagebrush lizard has keeled and spiny scales running along its dorsal surface. The keeled dorsal scales are typically gray or tan, but can be a variety of colors. The main (ground) color is broken by a lighter gray or tan stripe running down the center of the back (vertebral stripe) and two light stripes, one on either side of the lizard (dorsolateral stripes). This lizard will sometimes have orange markings on its sides.
Named after the sagebrush plants near which it is commonly found.
