Mojave fringe-toed lizard, Uma scoparia, on the Ibex Sand Dunes in Death Valley National Park, California. The elongated scales or "fringe" on its toes give this lizard traction to run over loose, dry sand. Listed as a Species of Special Concern by the State of California due to declining populations and habitat loss.
