Elgraria Multicarinata Multicarinata AKA ( California Aligator lizard ). These lizards could be found throughout the strewnfield. Many of the local residents recommended being very carefull while walking through the tall grass due to the Rattlesnakes coming out of hibernation at this time of the year.Two of our team members soon found out how true this threat was. Mike and Stan were walking along a trail lined with tall grass when a hiss was followed by a near miss strike. The 3’ Diamondback missed Mike’s leg by 8 -10”.
