(Juvenile) Orange-throated Whiptail

Aspidoscelis hyperythra beldingi


Orange, yellow, brown and blue lizard. There are several vertical lines running from head to the tip of the tail.


It ran very quickly across a dirt trail at Blue Sky Ecological Reserve. Sorry for the bad photos. My camera was in some weird mode that wouldn't allow me to adjust the focus :(


This species has been identified in the California State Wildlife Action Plan as Species of Greatest Conservation Need

:) Thank you Darwin26. I'm just glad you can see the wonderful colors on this one. I'm a bit envious of you and your seasons. We seem to only have wet and dry seasons here.

Pretty spiffy pix to me. i'm a tad envious - you have Lizards and the snow is soon to fly here... all reptiles have headed to bed.
Thank you,

Poway, California, USA
