Keeled Earless Lizard

Holbrookia propinqua


This young lizard is tan all over and blended in with the sand perfectly. Earless lizards get their name by lacking external ear openings that most lizards have.


This species lives in coastal sand dunes. This was the 12th one we saw before we finally caught one.
