Elegant Earless Lizard

A small, gray to orange-brown lizard with no external ear openings. Blending in with the soil it lives within. Markings are highly variable, usually including four rows of blotches (chevrons) on the body and light speckles. Males often have blue coloration around bold side blotches, less distinct dorsal blotches, light speckling and yellow infusion on the lower sides. Females have pink or orange tint when gravid (with eggs) and side blotches are often faint or lacking. Underside of the tail is plain white. Twin sides bars and lack of ear openings distinguish it from Common side-blotched Lizard.

this diurnal ground dweller is most active in mornings and evenings, avoiding extreme mid-day heat. Eating insects, spiders and hatchling lizards.

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.
