Re: Melanistic Snake Identification Needed

It's hard to say, but to me from a defensive behavior side it's not looping its tail enough to be a ringneck. But as Paul said I would go with Mr. Hoyer's knowledge on this one.

Re: Alien Lizard Identification Needed

I wanted to say that it looked a dollar store lizard I bought my son, but I figured this must be an inside joke you had with someone. So I didn't want to ruin the fun. Definitely a toy though.

Identification Help

I was wondering if anyone could help me identify this little fellow. I took these pictures at a rest stop off of the 139 in Lassen County on my way to San Diego. I am not well versed in Cal Herps yet and it looks like to me either some kind of fence or Side-blotched Lizard.
