MTRP and the San Diego City Nature Challenge 2018

MTRP and the San Diego City Nature Challenge 2018
MTRP is a great place to spend some time and record observations of nature this spring, especially the last weekend of April. San Diego is competing in the international City Nature Challenge this year and your help is needed. First step is to join the iNaturalist project here: https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/city-nature-challenge-2018-san-diego-county

Differentiate Fence Lizards from Side-Blotched Lizard...

Honestly, I could see little to no difference between photos of Fence Lizards and Side-Blotched Lizards...
alexb0000 provided the following guide for me:
The easiest way is their body scales, Fence Lizards are rough and slightly spiky while Side-Bloctched have smooth pebble-like scales. Side-Blotcheds also have a longer, pointier snout. If you haven't already, check out these galleries:

Also, to make things even more confusing, in the San Diego area we have a "subspecies" of the Fence Lizard:
The Great Basin Fence Lizard.
