Southern Alligator Lizard

Lizards Home > Library > In The Wild
 

The Southern Alligator Lizard (Elgaria multicarinata) is native to North America, and more specifically, along the Pacific Coast. The largest population distribution is found in Southern California.

The Southern Alligator Lizard can usually be found close to human developments in urban areas, and outwards in the grasslands. They are used to humans and do not normally back off. If threatened, the Southern Alligator Lizard is aggressive, and will usually bite their predators. This being said, they do make excellent pets and are fairly easy to take care of in captivity.

The Southern Alligator Lizard is a light to medium brown in colour, and has a long prehensile tail. Their tail can actually grow to be about twice the length of their body. Including a fully intact tail, the Southern Alligator Lizard can grow to lengths reaching about 50 cm.
