Northern Alligator Lizard Oregon
A Northern Alligator Lizard (Elagaria coerulea) curled into itself along the Vernonia railroad in Oregon.
"This lizard prefers humid areas, such as the edges of meadows in coniferous forests, and is also found in riparian zones. This is the only lizard found in the cool coastal forests of northern Oregon.
The Northern Alligator Lizard eats small invertebrates (termites, beetles, ticks, spiders, millipedes, and snails), and occasionally takes small birds, mammals, and other lizards."
