    Lizards in a Ghost Town

    So I'll kick off our reptiles and amphibian section with some Lizard shots I took while exploring a Ghost town called 'Frisco' in south western Utah. I have no clue what kind of lizard these are so if you are a lizard expert, please chime in!

    I'm going to tentatively say 1&2 are Eastern Fence lizard. #3 I think is a Western Fence lizard, given his colouration.

    I could be completely wrong though, they could all be one species with a lot of colour variation. Swifts are hard to ID without having them in hand, they all look so similar! If anyone with better knowledge of swifts wants to give the ID a shot, go a head, chances are I'm wrong on this one.

    But nice photos, how'd you get so close?

    thanks, they were really just as interested in me as I was with them, they live in a town that hasn't had human inhabitants for over 90 years, so I think they were just interested in what I was doing there. at least the one in shots 1 and 2 was that way, the one in shot 3 was a lot more skittish.

    here's an even closer one, the end of my lens was probably 12" from him in this one which was about as close as they would let me come:

    Ok. Well taking a second look I'd say it's an Eastern Fence Lizard.
