Western Fence Lizard

Sceloporus occidentalis


This is a common lizard of California and is noted for its spiny scales and blue-bellied abdomen. Commonly referred to as the Blue Belly lizards.


This little guy/gal was a little stunned after the gardener passed by with the leaf blower. It managed to gather its nerves before scurrying off.
