I made a new friend last weekend, can you see it? He/she wanted me to think she was a rock, but I knew better. Although similar in coloring and even texture, this squirmy little creature was far from it.
Realizing she has been spotted she quickly jumped from rock to rock and then up the wall of the house. Look at how well she blends in!
Looking at her amazing climbing skills, something tells me this might be a gecko? Since they are known to be excellent climbers. But to be honest I'm really not sure. The climate I found her in is high desert, and there are lots of Horny Toads (Horned Lizards) in the area as well.
Do you know what kind of lizard this is? Help us solve the mystery in the comments section below!
