Brief SummaryRead full entry
Juveniles display light longitudinal stripes and spots on a dark background. This pattern becomes less distinct in adults as the light color fades with age (Stebbins 2003, Degenhardt et al. 2005).
Based on the result of a phylogenetic analysis by Reeder et al. (2002), this lizard is now commonly treated under the name Aspidoscelis burti.
