The western fence lizard (Sceloporus occidentalis) is a common lizard of Arizona, California, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Northern Mexico, and the surrounding the ventral abdomen of an adult is characteristically blue, it is also known as the blue-belly.

It is a member of the genus Sceloporus (the spiny lizards).Class: Reptilia. To investigate the physiological, behavioral, and genetic contributions to growth rate, we studied the thermal sensitivity of growth rate in hatchlings of the iguanid lizards Sceloporus occidentalis and S.

graciosus in the laboratory. We used a cycling thermal regime patterned after thermal environments found in nature. Growth rates increased with duration of access to radiant by: The capacity of naturally breeding western fence lizards (Sceloporus occidentalis biseriatus) to discriminate and respond to conspecific and control chemical cues was examined.

Lizards were presented with markings and exudates of male and female donors, as well as cologne (a pungency control) and water, in a successive discrimination by: Malarial parasitism and male competition for mates in the western fence lizard, Sceloporus occidentalis J.J.

Schall and M.D. Dearing Department of Zoology, University of Vermont, Burlington, VTUSA Summary. The effect of malarial parasitism on the ability of. Sceloporus occidentalis, the western fence lizard, is one of the most common reptiles in southern California and occurs in a great variety of habitats.

The animals are territorial and usually perch during the day on an exposed basking site of old lumber or rocks. Their diet consists mainly of insects and spiders.

Interactions: What eats it. Although critical, the Western Fence Lizard’s placement on the food chain is by no means dominant. Due to their sunbathing nature, Sceloporus occidentalis often find themselves easy prey for their numerous predators: snakes, birds, shrews, and California Striped Racers are just a few.

Interestingly enough, some lizards may even fall victim to an incredible turn. Malarial Parasitism and the Behavior of the Lizard, Sceloporus occidentalis Jos.

The dunes sagebrush lizard (Sceloporus arenicolus) is a habitat specialist of conservation concern limited to shin oak sand dune systems of New Mexico and Texas (USA).Because much of the dunes sagebrush lizard's habitat occurs in areas of high oil and gas production, there may be direct and indirect effects of these by: 1.

Abstract. The loci and frequency of conspecific body licking actions of naturally breeding, adult western fence lizards, Sceloporus occidentalis biseriatus, were catalogued and analyzed in an experimental ethogram purpose of the study was to begin to localize regions of the western fence lizard body that might exude or carry conspecific chemical signals, or pheromones.

When keeping the larger species of spiny lizard (desert or crevice spiny lizard), the terrarium décor can remain the same, but the terrarium/cage size should be increased. A gallon capacity cage will house a pair of blue or desert spiny lizards, and a gallon terrarium will be adequate for a trio.

The most recent SSAR Names List () removed the subspecies S. taylori and now shows only five subspecies, but many authorities have already accepted research that concludes that S. becki, the Island Fence Lizard, is a unique species - Sceloporus becki (Wiens & Reeder, ) (Bell, ) which would leave only four subspecies of S.

Sceloporus occidentalis has coloration on the underside of its body, males have blue patches on their underarms, throats and on the undersides of their abdomens, females have much less of this coloration (Figs 2 and 3). Sceloporus occidentalis ranges in size from two and a quarter to three and one half inches in snout-vent length (Stebbins,).

—Seasonal variability in intensities of ectoparasites of western fence lizards (Sceloporus occidentalis) was quantified in spring, summer, and autumn Lizards were suspended over pans of water in the laboratory to enumerate replete western black-legged ticks (Ixodes pacificus) and mites.

The scales on the back are fairly large, keeled, and pointed. Coloration is highly variable, but often the back is gray, brown, or black, with a series of wavy dark and light bands across the back or a row of somewhat V-shaped dark blotches along each side of the back.

The Western Fence Lizard (Sceloporus occidentalis) is a quite common iguanid lizard occupying a variety of habitats in the western United States. It is a common lizard in Oregon, but not so big as to be considered "important" or interesting by the public as a whole.

Characterization of metabolic rate is critical to constructing daily and seasonal energy budgets, constructing models of individuals for use in individual based modeling, understanding patterns of resource allocation, and understanding within-and among-population variation in life-history phenotypes.

Western Fence Lizard ORDER: SQUAMATA | FAMILY: PHRYNOSOMATIDAE. Camp Pendleton, Juliett Training Area, San Diego County, California, United States. 30 April Overview. The Western Fence Lizard is found across western North America from central Washington southward to just east of Rancho Socorro in northern Baja.

The Western Fence Lizard is a widespread organism that inhabits many different types of habitats (Hollingsworth and Hammerson, ). According to research gathered from the ICUN Red List of Endangered Species, the Western Fence Lizard has a population range spanning the western United States into northern parts of Mexico.
