    A collared lizard. Which specific one, I'm not sure. I rescued one from a zoo once. Stuffed him in my camera bag and headed for the door. Haha. He was in a big walk-in indoor exhibit....for very large birds!! He was lunch!!! I jumped over the little wall, snatched him up, and away we went. He lived about 4 good years at my house, eating lunch, not being lunch. Haha.

    Collared lizards can be pretty bold! They also have a good bite!
    Just a little trivia about them. In the old days they were known as "mountain boomers" and were said to be deadly venomous!
