We are interested in finding out where lizards live in the Los Angeles region. To do this, we need your help! All you need to do is follow some very easy steps to find, take pictures of, and then submit your information about lizards. By participating in LLOLA you'll be providing our scientists with valuable data to help us answer the question: Why don't lizards live in Exposition Park?

LLOLA is bringing to light the spread of an introduced lizard species, the Mediterranean House Gecko, Hemidactylus turcicus. LLOLA participants, the Bernstein family, discovered a new population of this gecko while out and about in their Chatsworth neighborhood. This is the first recorded case of these lizards in L.A. County. Check out the submission.
For more information on this non-native lizard species, go to the California Herps website.
