Great Plains Skink:Like most typical skinks, the Great Plains skink has a long, slender body, a short narrow snout, and small, somewhat weak limbs. 

Common Chuckwalla: is another fairly large, easily recognizable lizard occupying much of the American Southwest. Its brownish-grey body is wide and flat with strong, muscular legs.

Regal Horned Lizard:True to its name, the regal horned lizard looks as if it’s wearing an ornate crown of spikes atop its head. Like many other horned lizard species.
