Blue Tail

Blue TailWhile hiking back down the valley view trail in Big Sur during our camping trip a few weeks back, we spotted this little lizard with a very blue tail! It’s not exactly going to help keep him hidden among the leaves and twigs, so I wonder why it is blue? A warning perhaps that he’s not tasty…

Still, he sat still long enough for a couple of photos which makes a change!

  1. Form the WEB : Many small lizards have a bright blue tail. This paradoxically attracts the attention of predators, but at least the predators are attacking the wrong end of the animal.

  2. we have tons of these around our house in FL. We actually have one that is the size of a snake, kinda scary. But they have babies twice a year, and so now we have lots of little ones too
