Where would you find me? (2010)

The plateau-striped whiptail lizard lives in only one place in Oregon, and it happens to be in an Oregon state park. Although how the first lizard made its way to the park is a mystery, it’s no mystery why there are so many now. This lizard species is single gendered (female) and reproduces by a process similar to cloning. They multiply quickly. Look for the 6-7 pale stripes that run down their dark back and extend to their long bluish tail. These lizards are very quick and don’t stop moving for long.
