[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Chuckwallas are large lizards found primarily in arid regions of the southwestern United States (Utah, Nevada, western Arizona, Baja California) and northern Mexico. They can grow up to 1.5 feet long.
Chuckwallas are noted for their wide, flattened midsections and prominent paunch. Their tails are also notably thick, tapering to a blunt tip. Loose folds of skin characterize the neck and sides of the body, which is covered in small, coarsely granular scales. Males are generally larger than females.
