Range Description

This lizard is endemic to Florida in the southeastern United States. It occurs in four disjunct areas in central and southern Florida: vicinity of Ocala National Forest in northern peninsular Florida, numerous inland sites in Polk and Highlands counties, Atlantic coast scrubs in central and southern Florida (Brevard County to Broward County), and Gulf Coast scrubs in Lee and Collier counties (DeMarco 1992). It now occurs sparingly in Collier County on the southwest coast and in the scrub along the sandy southeastern coastline; it is more numerous in suitable habitat on the Lake Wales Ridge and in the scrublands of Lake and Marion counties (Bartlett and Bartlett 1999).
