Great Basin Western Whiptail
The Great Basin whiptail (Aspidoscelis tigris tigris) is a subspecies of the common western whiptail found in Southeastern California. Found throughout most of the American Southwest, whole populations of western whiptails tend to stay in the same region resulting in great variety of patterns, stripes, and spots based on geographic location across their range. This one was photographed in the Mojave Desert in Joshua Tree National Park.
