Glass Lizard

While walking the Sandtown trail at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma I came across a Western Slender Glass Lizard. I had no idea what it was and had to research it when I got home.

Their head shapes, movable eyelids, and external ear openings identify them as lizards.

Green Anole Climbing On Leaves

When I see Green Anoles in the trees, they are a brighter color and are more the color of the leaves. This one was a duller color. This one may have been too busy watching me instead of changing colors. Here is another Green Anole I photographed in a tree and it blends better with the leaves: Green Anole In A Tree

Lizard On Shed Antler

I keep a bunch of shed antlers around my place for the wildlife (Wildlife will gnaw on antlers for their nutrients). The Lizards like to climb around on them looking for bugs to eat or for safety.

Lizard Growing New Tail

This Prairie Lizard looks like it is growing a new tail. If you look closely, you can see where the new section is. Everything about this Lizard seems different. It is a darker color. It looks to have dirt on the tip of its nose and mouth. It is larger than most in my area.

I see this Lizard often and had to move it once because it was in the grass I was mowing. It was easy to catch and didn’t struggle at all. It always has the dirt looking spot on its nose.

Green Anole On A Dead Log

This is the same Green Anole I posted a photo of Friday (Green Anole In A Tree). It was on a dead log near the tree it was on before. I got close for this photo.
