Red Lizard

He’s not super red, still more brown, but he’s a lot more reddish than the grey, black, brown, or tan lizards in the yard.

His domain is the south side of the back yard, along the fence and hedge that separates us from the neighbors’ yard.

He’s not one of the small, baby lizards. I haven’t seen any of them in the back yard, they’re all out front by the driveway.

I would think that his territory might be somewhat perilous – there are at least two mockingbird nests in the hedges right above his head and they would love to catch him for lunch.

Which is probably why he won’t let me get anywhere near him. But he is a beauty! And with this weekend’s temps up about 110°F every day, he won’t have any problem being active and quick.
