Notes

Went on the search for the very limited range sandstone night lizard with Surfinherp and Nature Nate and luckily were able to find 2 of them out in open on sandstone rock face near big vertical crack. Guessing one was male and one was female, subadult to adult age. First time around we missed getting any vouchers due to phone/camera malfunctions so we went back 2 more times 30 minutes to an hour later and luckily one of them came back out and were able to get a few pics out on rock and in crack. Also found lizard scat nearby that we assume is night lizard scat. This was a lifer for all 3 of us!
