PLATEAU FENCE LIZARD

The Plateau Fence Lizard is found in northern and eastern Arizona, in higher elevations of 3000-9000 feet. These lizard’s like open areas where basking is available on wood and rocks in desert scrub, grassland, and woodland ecosystems. These lizards are active mostly in mid-morning and later afternoon. They hibernate in the winter. They eat spiders, insects, snails, and even smaller lizards. The most distinguishing marks on a Plateau Fence Lizard are two blue blotches on the belly, they are faint on the females. I found this one at the Wupatki Ruins in northern Arizona.
