Notes:
Found two skeletonized adult individuals about 20 feet from one another, both dead as the result of being trapped inside of discarded tires. Evidently the lizards can climb up the outside of the tire and fall in, but once inside there is no escape. Something for us to think about when we find discarded tires in the field.
