alligator lizard ~ 05/08/10 ~ Fort Ord

California alligator lizard
Elgaria multicarinata multicarinata

Can you see it through the leaves? They move so differently than western fence lizards. While looking this up, I was amazed to see this video on CA Herps of the detached tail flailing about. How does it do that without being attached to the body and brain?
