Mono Basin and Hot Creek Area

Both the Great Basin Fence Lizard (Sceloporus occidentalis longipes) and the Sierra Fence Lizard (Sceloporus occidentalis taylori) could be the varieties Fence Lizard that occur here - but not one of the photos on-line shows the bright orange colors that this lizard had by his ears. This lizard is probably a female or a juvenile since there is very little blue color on its belly.
