Southern Alligator Lizard
- We have two of these guys in our exhibits! They are pretty shy, but you can see them lying underneath their tunnels.
- When threatened, they can detach their tail to distract a potential predator while they escape! Their tails can regenerate, but do not look the same as their original
- They have a thick, round body with short legs and a long tail. They are a combination of a brown, gray and yellow with dark bands on their back, sides and tail.
- They can be seen along the trails at all times of the day.
- They love to eat crickets!
