Madrean Alligator Lizard

A large, shiny, long-bodied lizard with relatively small limbs and a long thick tail. The back and belly are armored with stiff, rectangular, late-like scales. A soft fold of skin on each side allows the body to expand for breathing.

This ground dweller is often found foraging in leaf litter or under rock piles, rats nests, fallen logs (where I found this guy) or dead plants. Seems to be most abundant in wooded canyons or along drainages.

Eats insects, spiders and scorpions. Presumably a Fall breeder laying up to 15 eggs in late Spring or early Summer.

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.
