A vividly colored visitor to our yard emerges regularly to forage for insects, digging with ferocity in the grass and dirt for something to satisfy his appetite. His long claws tear at the roots of the grass as his head bobs up and down, grabbing his prey. Today I happened to spot the Rainbow Whiptail Lizard emerging from one of his many holes among the rocks which surround our yard. He was not too far from my feet. What I managed to capture, as I snapped a couple of photos, was his mealtime. It was just another fascinating and surprising experience I was delighted to witness. I have included a photo I took on a previous occasion to show his entire brilliant, scaly body and naturally, photos of his mealtime.
