Are you talking about the gray girl? If so, she is a southern, California subspecies. Both she and the male were caught in the wood pile in my backyard (I live in the outskirts of Santa Maria on the central coast).

That was the first year I saw her, I saw her for two subsequent years (she lost her tail in the second) and then a pair of California kings showed up when they cleared the fallow field by my house and all of the resident als disappeared and I haven't seen them for over a year now. I ended up keeping one of the kings, since our yard seemed to be past carrying capacity with even the fence lizards becoming scarce.

I also saw the male regulary over that same span. Last summer around the same time the kings showed up, I found him with a bloodied head looking lethargic and very thin with sunken eyes. I ended up keeping him for a few months until he recovered. I'm hoping I'll see him again this spring.
