Bluebelly

In my travels around the yard this morning, I lifted up a board and found this guy, a Western Fence Lizard, otherwise known to farmers, ranchers and small boys as a Bluebelly.

What a little dinosaur!


He was awake, but too cold to resist me picking him up and taking his portrait.  Wildlife!

Aaahh!  The sun.

  3. I've never seen one bite, but I'm sure one would if teased enough and presented with a plump finger as a target.

  4. I spent a lot of time in the nearby vacant field when I was growing up. There were all sorts of critters there: swifts, alligator lizards, gopher snakes, meadowlarks, doves, butcherbirds, sparrow hawks, jackrabbits, scorpions, potato bugs, sun spiders etc. There was a pond with frogs, and tadpoles in two different sizes- small and huge.
    The place was a kid's paradise.

    It is now a large shopping mall. Or as I call it, a Giant Scum Magnet.

    1. Malls are temples of greed, built to allow people to worship and consume on credit, as their little hearts desire.

    2. Alligator lizards will not hesitate to bite - don't ask me how I know.

      Malls are indeed temples of greed, surpassed only by the Internet, and it's evil handmaiden, Paypal.
