Desert Spiny Lizard — Image by kenne

It’s hard not to think of lizards when one thinks of the hot desert days of summer.
Most lizards like the heat, but not to much. 

An article in the Smithsonian Magazine notes,
“Scientists worry that a warming climate may be especially dangerous for lizards,
which aren’t able to regulate their own temperatures.” 

Scientists are making use mitochondrial DNA to map out a species’ genetic diversity
to learn how animals might best adapt to global warming, if at all.
Lizards “may need to become nocturnal if they want to survive.”

Still, I’m always amazed to see a Zebra-tailed lizard moving across a neighbor street (black-top)
in the bright sun knowing that the air temperature is already in the triple digits
— go figure!
