Western fence Lizard

sceloporus occidentalis


Better known as the western fence lizard or blue belly. Typically spotted in the spring to fall seasons.


The western fence lizards can be found near most temperate areas on the west coast of the United states more specifically near rocky areas as the rocks aid in their daily sunning routine


This guy in the pic is particularly brazen and just sat on my porch eating bugs and sunning so I snapped a pic of him
