Colorado Desert Fringe-toed lizards

Detailed Description

Colorado fringe-toed lizards (Uma notata) occupy the vast windblown sands of the Algodones Dunes in Imperial County, California and crossing the border into Sonora, Mexico. The photo on left is a clear photograph of the lizard asleep on the sand in the open, while the second photo illustrates how the lizards wiggles out of site once it finds a place on the sand that it likes. Note the fringed scales on the trailing edge of their feet that aids in travel on loose sand.
