I caught this Chuckwalla on tour yesterday!

Sauromalus Ater

aka "flat lizard"

I'm getting good at catching Chuckwallas. Of course it is all catch and release. Chuckwallas will bite but their teeth are small and harmless because they only eat plant matter. They can give you a good pinch, though.

Look at how well I caught it. See how I pinned his front arms down so that he can't scratch. He was shedding his skin so I let him go quickly after taking a couple of photos.
