Brown back, gray sides, and bright white belly.
A nocturnal species, of course we found it during the middle of the day. It was crawling across a large rock right next to the road at about 2pm. High elevation grassland, we were at one of the rocky areas flipping rocks for herps, and this guy wasn't even under a rock.
