unknown baby lizard


This baby lizard was about two inches long, excluding its tail. I saw several others the same size, but this was the only one that stayed still long enough to have its picture taken.

I'm almost positive it's an Uta. There are several subspecies of Uta Stansburiana that can have similar patterns to this one. Particularly, the plateau subspecies comes to mind, though it could be others as the pattern sometimes doesn't fully develop until they get a little older. Uta's are some of my very favorite reptiles.
