I have a feeling that many of my blog posts from this week might have boring generic titles. Like this post. The word "lizard" is probably very accurate, but the confidence I have in my identification of the creature I photographed is not very high. I think this is a Great Basin Whiptail. Trying to identify this creature using a very slow Internet connection, creative searches on Google and no field guide was challenging. Coming to the conclusion that the specific creature I photographed is missing most of what is normally a very long tail...well, that was even harder. Both photos were taken while hiking the Buffalo Point Trail on Antelope Island.
