Cueva. I’d appreciate it if someone could
identify this lizard. It is about 5 inches (12cm) long.
UPDATE: thanks to a tip from Kevin, I think I have ID’ed the little guy…
It appears to be a greater earless lizard: Cophosaurus texanus.
Bora fwded me this link and though I’m in China and don’t have any of my guides with me I can only take an educated guess. It looks like a species of earless lizard, and obviously a male at that. Internet here is pretty poor, otherwise I would search for more details… hope that gets you started in the right direction though
This lizard is so aesome I luv it!!
This summer in central Ohio I observed a small lizard like creature, not a salamander on a bike trail. There are streams and woods nearby. It was about five inches long, and was dark in color with two yellow stripes down the back. The most unusal color was the tail. Completely indigo blue. The head was not shaped like a salamander, but was more diamond shaped. I have been trying unsuccessfully to identify this creature.
that’s a butterfly agama
