Collared Lizard (Crotaphytus collaris) - Newton County, Arkansas

The Collared Lizard is found in Newton County, Arkansas, in open glades on sandstone outcrops above the Buffalo National River. One of the best sites, is "Old River Road" (no sign) off Scenic Seven Byway. This would be the first left after crossing the bridge over the Buffalo River going north. I can see them without leaving the car, by scanning the rock along the road. They are up to 14" long and very striking.
