Oregon Alligator Lizard alligator lizard tail  
An Oregon Alligator Lizard is discovered sheltering under a rock on a cold spring day in the Siskiyou Mountains of Siskiyou County. This video shows how a Southern alligator lizard's tail thrashes around after it has been dropped to distract a predator. The tail moved for about 4-5 minutes, which has been cut down here to about a minute, showing several different speeds until it is just barely moving.
