Arabian Spiny-tailed Lizard - Sabkhat Al Fasl

At Sabkhat Al Fasl yesterday I saw a couple of good reptiles including this Arabian Spiny-tailed Lizard and managed to get a few good shots of it. It was quite docile as it was out of its burrow early in the morning  and had not heated up properly to allow it to move quickly due to the slight mist that was about. It was not the largest Arabian Spiny-tailed Lizard I have seen but was still about a 75 cm long. For more information on this species please click on the Wildlife tab at the top of the page.
