I'd like this spotting added to my Tucson Wildlife Count project mission.

I live in Tucson and the side-blotched lizards are a colorful little lizard. I'm not sure they are as numerous where I live which is one reason I have just created a new project mission called Tucson Wildlife Count to help notice the numbers of species in the Tucson area. Photos with many of the same species in Tucson are what I'm looking for to post in this project mission.

It was such a beautiful little lizard. The photo hardly does it justice.
