Individual(s) Observed (seen)
Caught a glimpse of the narrow-bodied lizard, which moved swiftly under a shrub. Got a good look at the tail, which was slender and gray-green. Before the lizard again moved swiftly, I glimpsed the body, which was roughly the same color as the tail, and seemed to have some small black rectangles on the sides. I estimate the lizard was at least 15 cm long.
