Greater Short-horned Lizard? Range extension?

Wikipedia wrote:The Short-horned Lizard is more cold tolerant than other species and is able to reach higher elevations and a greater distribution where the temperature is much cooler. They live in many places around the world

we have collected records from as far away as Utah... I guess some folks think any High Desert is covered by our group... also folks who live in the Hi-D DO take trips, once in a while, and take pics. :crazyeyes: :lol: :lol: :lol:
