Hidden Valley

Loopholes for Lizards

Side-blotched lizard plans strategy to run for cover in rocks
The cracks in the rocks provide homes was well as a quick getaway for lizards and snakes. You may see the western fence lizard; the males have blue bellies during mating season. Our largest lizard, the chuckwalla, can live up to 40 years. When in danger, it will run into a crack and inflate its body. Watch where you put your hands, as snakes like to cool off in the shady crevices.
