For the second consecutive summer, I have stumbled across a Northern Alligator Lizard. Both were discovered in the southernmost end of the province. Both were found in mountainous terrain perhaps 5-800 feet below the tree-line. Using Audubon’s Reptiles & Amphibians App, I discovered it is the only lizard that can be found living up to 10,000 ft elevation. It is also the only known lizard to bare live young!
