They Like the Sandy Terrain
Photography by GEORGE BRADTHere are two of the Speckled Earless Lizards (Holbrookia approximans)whose habitat is the sandy floor of the desert in New Mexico, Arizona
and
eastern Texas. Like most of the other American species of lizards they are quiteharmless. They are unique in lacking an external ear opening—hence the
commonname.
