A Sagebrush Lizard is usually found in altitudes from 500 to 10,500 feet, in the western part of the United States. Their name comes from sagebrush plants that they are commonly found. They can also be found in pinon-juniper, fir, or redwood woodlands. They are diurnal, and move around quickly. If frightened they will hide in crevices, brush, trees, and rocks, they will lay still and play dead, as well. Sagebrush lizards eat a variety of insects and they are prey to snakes, small mammals, and raptors. I ran across this one in pinon-juniper area, around 6000 feet in elevation.
