Just because Sunday creatures great and small pictures.

Ira! He’s pretty much completely shed his winter coat.


Sceloporus olivaceus, aka Texas Spiny Lizard. Actually, this was taken at the same intersection as the Ron Paul sign, just a day later. These are wonderful lizards, primarily found in trees or on roofs, getting up to a maximum of 11 inches in length. This one, about 8 inches, had a lot more color than I’ve seen on one before. I stopped to take his picture from the car, then a dude on a motorcycle stopped to wait for him to cross the road. We all three sat there for a bit till he skedaddled.


An —I think—Orange Sulphur.
