Northern Alligator Lizards are relatively common in Western Washington, but they are seldom seen due to their excellent camouflage and secretive habits. Their brown, mottled coloration allows them to blend so well with the leaf litter and woody debris in which they live that they become almost invisible to human eyes. They blend slightly less well with pavement though, so when an alligator lizard recently wandered onto the blacktop at a Toys-R-Us in Lynnwood, it wasn’t long before a concerned citizen snatched her up and brought her to PAWS.
