As I tried to get even closer for some photos, my dogs chased it up the tree. It appears to be a spiny lizard.
He certainly has a prehistoric look! I am so glad to have him living in my yard. I saw a baby about a year ago! I wonder if he or she is the baby grown up or a parent? We have lots of geckos and anoles, but a spiny lizard is a treat!
Ya'll Come Back!
