This little lizard wasn't all that fast, but was very difficult to spot- it matches the rocks so well.
Rocky top of a hill - dry, arid, sandy- about a mile from the Niobrara River. There are lots of prairie grass and flowers nearby that attract plenty of bugs for the lizards to eat.
Their color is supposed to intensify when they are mad or threatened, but when my children chased and tried to catch him this lizard stayed white.
