Texas Spiny Lizard

Have I ever mentioned that we have cool lizards in our neighborhood as well as birds? I was sitting at my dining room table and saw something moving on the window sill. It was this Texas Spiny Lizard. I've seen one in my front yard before, but this is the first time this year. I believe it's a young male because of the speck of blue-green color under the ear and no wavy lines on its back. This guy is about 6 inches long but they get as long as 11 inches. They eat bugs, so I hope he grows to his maximum size!
