Mister Invisible

Phrynosoma blainvillii - Coast or Blainville's Horned Lizard

 

Gorgeous adult lizard found on the side of the trail only because it decided to move.

 

I don't understand the taxonomy of this species. P. coronatum has long been used to describe the species and is the older name but for some reason all of the resources have switched to P. blainvillii which was previously the San Diego subspecies (and no longer recognized).
