Juvenile Fence Lizard

Coast Range Fence Lizards breed in the spring, and soon after females lay one to three clutches of around a dozen eggs each.  By mid-summer, these eggs begin to hatch and juvenile fence lizards begin to appear.  Without much effort, many of these young lizards can now be found in the GNG.
