Catch me if you can: the fastest lizard in the desert

Tucson Botanical Gardens exhibit: zebra-tailed lizard drawing on live-edge wood

 Tail tales--In the 1940s, the geometric pattern and colors earned these fast-sprinting zebra-tailed lizards the name “gridiron” #lizards, and the tail-wagging gave them the Spanish name perrito — little dog. On #NPR, I talk more about an intimate encounter with the fastest lizard in the desert

This drawing and 11 other critters are displayed outdoors at #Tucson Botanical gardens through June 6
