Chester’s Critter Cam: Collared Lizard

Published 4:38 pm Wednesday, May 20, 2015

By Chester Moore, Jr.
Frequent Critter Cam contributor Todd Jurasek is back with a great shot of a brilliantly colored collared lizard.
These lizards inhabit the arid regions of Texas and Oklahoma and the males coloration can be quite striking.
They are frequently seen while hiking through parkland in the western parts of the state, although it is rare to get a close look.
Despite being beautiful, collared lizards are also quite shy.
