San Diego Alligator Lizard

Elgaria multicarinata webbii

Notes:

On the way home, found these 2 lizards on the curb, not moving. One seems to be attacking the smaller guy. Any help identify them is more than welcome.

You're welcome! Alligator lizards are awesome, more prehistoric looking than most :)

That's actually what my son suggested when we saw them... But I just assumed they were 2 guys from a different species. Thanks a lot for your help !!

On the link I provided in my suggestion, if you scroll down you will find out that these two in your photo are mating, not attacking each other :)
