draconoides (Squamata: Phrynosomatidae) from Baja California Sur, Mexico.
torquatus during bipedality and other lizards such as Basiliscus, Anolis, Varanus, Uranoscodon, Dipsosaurus and Callisaurus (see Barbour, 1943; Snyder, 1967; Howland et al., 1990; Irschick and Jayne, 1999; Hsieh, 2003) it is clear that each one of these lizards uses different strategies during their bipedal running.
lutzae is, in general, more similar to the one observed in the lizards described by Irschick and Jayne (1999), particularly, Dipsosaurus dorsalis and Callisaurus draconoides.

The zebra-tailed lizard (Callisaurus draconoides) is a diurnal insectivore typically ocurring in fairly open areas in deserts throughout western North America (Pianka and Parker, 1972; Tanner and Krogh, 1975; Smith et al., 1987).

-- The behavior of ten Callisaurus draconoides in a 20 [m.sup.2] enclosure of natural microhabitat in Baja California Sur, Mexico, were monitored five days prior to and during a total solar eclipse on 11 July 1991.
The zebra-tailed lizard, Callisaurus draconoides, is a medium-sized (55-75 millimeters snout-vent length) inhabitant of North American deserts (Asplund, 1967; Vitt and Ohmart, 1977; Stebbins, 1985).
