I love whiptail lizards: they're so graceful, fast, and beautifully patterned. Here are some photos of whiptails in my yard in White Rock.

I'm still working on identifying them, but I think the striped adults are all Plateau Striped Whiptails since the Little Striped Whiptail would have a less bright center stripe..

Plateau Striped Whiptail adults?

Spotted adults: Chihuahuan Spotted Whiptail, Diploid Checkered Whiptail, possibly even a New Mexico Whiptail?
