Just your run-of-the-mill desert scrub brush, right? Maybe look again….
This guy!!!! I spotted him right by the house while carrying in groceries. He was so confident in his camouflage that he didn’t even flinch when I moved in for a closer look. He stayed while I grabbed my camera. Who knows, maybe he didn’t want to give up such a prime blending spot?
Up close his texture is amazing. He’s basically wearing lizard armor. Based on the crazy shit I’ve seen around my house, no doubt he needs it! I have a little animal guide to Joshua Tree with pictures (because I’m five-years-old) and I love crossing off each one as I see it. Horned Lizard I have you checked!
