As the weather has been warming up, we’ve been seeing more and more lizards on our walks. I believe these little guys (they are about 3-5 inches long) are Western Fence Lizards. We have them all over the place here in the East Bay.
Maybe your child(ren) would like to go on a walk to search for lizards? We usually find them soaking up the warmth of the sun on the brick walls that line the hills around our neighborhood and, quite often, right on the sidewalk. We make a game of trying to get as close to them as we can before they run away.
Do you have lizards in your neighborhood? What kind of lizards are they?
I took the following pictures yesterday while we were out near our home picking up trash. I was curious how close I could get with my iPhone camera.
