Leapin’ Texas Lizards

This morning upon leaving San Angelo State Park we saw this Greater Roadrunner in a tree with some prey in it’s beak.  Upon peering at it through my camera lens I realized was a lizard of some type.

It  got me to thinking of the lizard that I photographed in my back yard a couple of days ago.  It is an Eastern Fence Lizard.

 This next one is a Texas Earless, photographed on a nature trail in Big Bend National Park.

The Desert Grasslands Whiptail Lizard probably has the longest name.  However, it is not one of the longest of lizards  Average length is about 10 inches.  It was also photographed in far West Texas.

Last but certainly not least, is the colorful Green Anole Lizard.  I photographed this one near the Visitors’ Center in downtown San Angelo, Texas.
