Sceloporus undulatus is a diurnal lizard species that feeds on a variety of insects. S. u. consobrinus is terrestrial in open areas, but can be arboreal in wooded areas of its range. S. u. garmani is terrestrial and seeks shelter in animal burrows when threatened. S. u. Behavior Like many desert lizards, desert spiny lizards adjust their internal temperature by changing color so they are darker during cool times, which allows them to absorb more heat from the sun, and become lighter during warm times so they reflect more solar : Reptilia.
Spiny lizards is a common name for the genus Sceloporus in the family Phrynosomatidae. The genus is endemic to North America and Central America. This genus includes some of the most commonly seen lizards in the United States.

Abstract. Hatchling Sceloporus undulatus elongatus from Washington Co., Utah and S. garmani from Woods Co., Oklahoma were raised to maturity and reproduction under identical laboratory conditions with ad libitum food availability.
Growth, allometry, age and size of maturity, clutch size and egg mass were compared among lab-raised cohorts from the two populations, among lab-raised and field Cited by: Our studies of the eastern fence lizard (Sceloporus undulatus) have generated evidence that maternal and embryonic phenotypes are designed to promote growth and development in cold environments.
The objective of this study was to evaluate the thermal biology of the Mexican lizards Sceloporus aeneus and Sceloporus bicanthalis (Phrynosomatidae). Sceloporus aeneus is. Thus Newman and Patterson' have found that soil controls the local distribution of the lizard Sceloporus spinosus floridanus in a region in Texas, and the writer has shown that the presence of rocks on the mountains and of fine soil in the valleys causes a differentiation in the distribution of several reptiles in Nevada into mountain forms and plain forms.*.

Malarial Parasitism and the Behavior of the Lizard, Sceloporus occidentalis Jos. SCHALL AND GAIL A. SARNI The behavioral time budget of the western fence lizard, Sceloporus occidentalis, was recorded in northern California, where fence lizards are frequently infected both laboratory studies and observation on the host in a natural setting.
Discussion. In general, results of this study support the static view (Hertz et al. ) of the thermobiology for the genus body temperatures of Sceloporus approximated 35°C over a wide range of elevations and latitudes. Only at high elevations in the tropics did T b ’s average less than 35°C.
The low T b ’s of tropical Sceloporus at high elevations do not appear to Cited by: Angert, A., D. Hutchison, D. Glossip, J. Losos.

Journal of Herpetology, 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. Three phrynosomatid lizard species were selected as outgroup taxa, including Urosaurus nigricaudus, Uta stansburiana, and Phrynosoma phylogenetic trees were rooted with Phrynosoma coronatum, which is the most distantly related species included in this study (Reeder and Wiens,Schulte et al., ).
Uta and Urosaurus are appropriate for testing the monophyly of Sceloporus Cited by: 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,). A Texas spiny lizard using a red oak tree for camouflage The Texas spiny lizard is diurnal and arboreal.
Their preferred habitat is mesquite trees, over areas with a significant amount of ground leaf litter, but they are often found in suburban areas basking on fences or climbing telephone : Phrynosomatidae. Sceloporus olivaceus is arboreal and prefers mesquite trees, but may be observed on other tree species (such as oak, pecan, and cedar) as well as along fences, walls, and poles.
Conservation Status: The Texas spiny lizard is not a protected species in Texas and can be legally collected with a hunting license. Field studies of the behavior of the lizard Sceloporus spinosus floridanus by Horatio Hackett Newman (Book).1 InSchulte, Macey, and Papenfuss split S. magister into three species - S.
magister, S. uniformis, and S. bimaculosus, with two subspecies of S. magister - S. m. magister, and S. m. r, their sample size was very small which makes it difficult to determine the ranges of these new species in California.
Inthe S.S.A.R., whose list this web site follows, adopted.2 InLeache and Mulcahy concluded that "S. magister appears to represent a single geographically variable and widespread species." InCollins & Taggart submitted the 3 species proposal by Schulte, Macey, and Papenfuss to a lizard systematist group which disagreed, leaving them to continue to recognize one species - S.
magister - Desert Spiny Lizard.
