Great Basin Whiptail (Aspidoscelis tigris tigris) Skin

Detailed Description

Notice the smooth, granular scales – much different than the pointed, keeled scales of other local reptiles (i.e. spiny lizards, rattlesnakes), and similar to those of the Western Banded Gecko (Coleonyx variegatus variegatus).
