Long-nosed leopard lizard

Gambelia wislizenii

Description:

When I saw this lizard I thought it should be named Leopard lizard and it turns out I was right it is called Long-nosed leopard lizard. It has a large head, long nose, and a long round tail that can be longer than its body. About 12 cm long. They are endangered because of habitat destruction.

Habitat:

Red sandy soil in Arches National Park.

Notes:

This is my spotting 4,400!

No species ID suggestions

Thank you Neil. I found it n a desert and it was almost 40° C of temperature.

Looks like a very dry patch of earth too. He'd probably love Australia, although we probably have enough introduced species to contend with already.

Congrats. Luis, on the big 4400. A very handsome little lizard.
