This is the same Prairie Lizard I posted about a couple of days ago (Prairie Lizard From Above). I have several of these lizards that like to hang around my deck at my cabin near the Ouachita National Forest here in Arkansas. I saw a second one just below this one but closer to the ground.

How I Got The Shot – Prairie Lizard

I was hand holding a Fujifilm X-T3 camera with a Canon EF 100-400 mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II lens attached with a Fringer EF-FX Pro. I was shooting in aperture priority mode (AV) with a shutter speed of 1/340 of a second at f8 and the ISO at 800. White Balance on auto.

Lizard Facts

  • Lizards are everywhere except Antarctica.
  • They are cold-blooded animals and need sunlight to maintain their body temperature.
  • They have ear openings and their eardrums are just below the surface of their skin. Lizards are not able to hear as well as we do, but their hearing is better than snakes.
  • Lizards shed their old skin. Snakes lose their entire skin in one piece, while the skin of a lizard peels off in tiny parts.
  • Most lizards replace their teeth throughout life, except the chameleon and the Agamid lizards.
