Collared Lizard Crotaphytus collaris

exhibit a combination of color patterns in tandem with the
trademark double collar which make collared lizards some of North America's
most exotic looking reptiles.

Collared lizards are aggressive feeders, attacking and devouring other
lizard species like a mini T-Rex. In fact, some seem to prefer small lizards to
insects. They are fast
runners, they may even run on just their hind two legs, with their body held at
a 45 degree angle. Pugnacious in many ways, collared lizards stake out
and defend their territory against each other.
