Collared Lizard Scanning for Prey

View Large on Black

 

The Collared Lizard is the largest lizard found in the red rock country around Moab, Utah. They often sit on rocks like this male scanning the desert for smaller lizards and other prey. Note the powerful hind legs that help enable them chase down dinner. For my money, Collared Lizards are just about as pretty of a herp as you will ever find!
