Common side-blotched lizard

Uta stansburiana


This a female Commone side-blotched lizard. Not as colorful as the male and may resemble a Fence lizard in shape. The pattern one the back and the tell tale blotch behind the front leg helps to ID these.


This was found in the mountain desert, in a rocky area.
