Sceloporus olivaceus

We found this lizard in our backyard yesterday. We were working on school stuff and Drew saw it all the way across the yard.  I on the other hand  only saw the tail as it was running into my flowers when we approached. It was big! Drew was sad I didn't get to see the whole thing, so he drew a picture and we looked it up on the internet. It fit right into our lesson on classification of animals - the name in English is Spiny Olive Green Lizard!
