Collected this morning shortly after dawn.
She was on a trail, cold - I presume she had recently crawled out there to bask in the sun as it came up.

The only reason I collected her is because of her color, which is a yellowish green, somewhat uncommon (at least around here) for southern alligator lizards, which usually have a reddish tone to them.

She's definitely Elgaria multicarinata - I suspect she is Elgaria multicarinata multicarinata.

According to the field guide map, I may live in the southern area of integrade with E. m. scincicauda - but I think I'm south of that (Redding, CA). Anyway, that's all academic.

Beautiful lizard.
She has made no attempt at all to bite, unusual in my experience with Alligator Lizards that have just been captured.
