Zebra Tail Lizards are inhabitants of dry desert areas.  This little guy was in San Carlos near the Sea of Cortez.  He would run a little ways and then throw back his tail.  This is done to confuse predators.  The predator is more apt to go for the striped flicking tail instead of the lizardís body.  This can save the lizardís life as the tail breaks off easily and wiggles enough to keep the predator occupied as the lizard scurries to safety.  In time the lizardís tail grows back! 

The colors under this Zebra-tail is breeding coloration for mating.  Both male and females have the abdominal stripes but only the males get the bright coloration.
