Wordless Wednesday...Quick Change Artist

hill country wildlife

This is a photo of a lizard I took over Spring Break while visiting Pedernales Falls State Park with my son.

This little guy was amazing...

When on the sand, he became tan with spots...

When on the tree, he became brown with spots...

When on the grass, he became green...

When on the rocks, he became grey...

What a fascinating little fellow!

Hi Jeani,

I love these little lizards. We find them everywhere when I am in Arizona. I haven't encountered any sort of lizard in Seattle.

Nature created such amazing built in features to protect her precious creatures!

Great shot.

Best regards,

We have a similar looking lizard that sometimes is seen in the bay area.  It is called a "San Francisco Aligator Lizard."  I don't see them very often in Sacramento, but once I saw one out on my driveway.  When I approached it, rather than run, it lunged at me.  It was shocking because most of our little blue bellied lizards run from humans.

Thanks for the comments!  He was quite interesting to watch and kind of reminded me of being in real estate, we always have to be prepared to adapt to a changing environment!

We have 'little' Lizards in South Florida that WE think are BIG.  Yikes !!!

Ofcourse we have the REALLY BIG Lizards...Aligators, but in 20 years I've never seen one walking around.
