EASTERN FENCE LIZARD
SOUTHERN FENCE LIZARD
Synonym: Sceloporus undulatus undulatus
A lizard of open pine flatwoods and fields, often seen on fences, stumps and trees. The range extends through much of the south-central and southeastern states, and in Florida as far south as the I-4 corridor.
These lizards have a rough scaly body up to 15 cm (~6in.) long, with wavy patterns of black and light gray on top. These patterns are usually much fainter in males which also have bright blue patches on the sides of the belly and throat.
Florida fence lizards have been classified as Sceloporus undulatus undulatus, but recent studies indicate that there are no natural subspecies of S. undulatus
