Plateau Lizard (Sceloporus tristichus)

Plateau Lizard (Sceloporus tristichus)

Many people in the Western United States get their first real introduction to reptiles from Sceloporus occidentalis, the Western fence lizard. This small grayish-brown lizard has a covering of shiny blue scales on its belly, giving rise to the better-known name of "blue belly lizard." They make interesting pets if you can catch one without it shedding its tail, but they’re also fun to observe as they clamber over trees, sand and rocks in the wild.
