Rabbits and Lizards on South Camp Rd.

 *
Two of the most common sights while biking near the Colorado National Monument on South Camp Road are rabbits and lizards. Today was no exception. Here are some pictures:




There were two rabbits near the entrance to Wingate Park. 
This one looked a little nervous.




This one didn't seem to mind my presence at all.




I believe that this is a whiptail lizard.
Perhaps the western whiptail...
Anyone else out there know?




It was very active, and ate several small insects as I followed it.





A short video of the lizard looking for insects in the grass:
