Identification:The leopard lizard is a fairly large species (up to 384 mm total length; Nussbaum et al. 1983) with a distinct, robust head. It is covered in tiny, granular scales, so that its skin feels smooth to the touch. Lizards have fairly long legs and a long tail. Females are larger than males. Coloration is light grey with darker spots on the dorsal surface. Females will develop orange spots on their sides and tail when gravid.
