Collared Lizard basic information

This lizard has black bands behind its head that look much like a collar, giving it a look that has helped earn its common as well as scientific names. The collar is always present in males, but it may be missing in the female. This is one way to distinguish between the sexes. Their bodies are usually green with the head being a brilliant shade of yellow. The males often have boldly colored throats, hues of blue, green or orange. Their stomachs can also have large patches of blue, with spots of white, yellow or red. The females, in contrast, often have fawn or gray colorations that can gain red or salmon spots during the breeding season, which develop into orange lateral spots after mating. The average length for this species is between 8 and 14 inches.
