Collared Lizard, Male

Large adult male Collared Lizard in Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. This is the state lizard of Oklahoma and they are also known as "Mountain Boomers".  I have always wanted to see one of these, and by the end of the second day I had seen at least a dozen individuals. The "Dog Run Hollow"  trail is an eight mile circuit that starts at French Lake, and it was on that trail where I saw this lizard. Crotaphytus collaris
