Orange-throated Whiptail

Aspidoscelis hyperythrus beldingi
(Stejneger, 1894)
San Diego Co., California. March 30, 2012.

“There’s an orange-throat!”


“Right over there!”

Everyone in the group was seeing them, but I couldn’t spot one if my life depended on it. I knew right then that that the orange-throat would be my nemesis herp for this trip. I finally laid eyes on one, a short distance away, and got one poor shot with 18x zoom.
