Granite Spiny Lizard

Sceloporus orcutti


Beautiful juvenile lizard with black stripes over orange and gray. There are white spots on the ends of the black stripes down the back. The adult stripes are much more muted as seen in my other spotting:


First time seeing this species on my property. Front yard driveway on rock (probably granite).
