Sit-on-Me Chuckwalla.

Sit-on-Me Chuckwalla

Field review by the editors.

Kingman, Arizona

The chuckwalla is native to the Kingman region of Arizona. It's the largest lizard in the U.S., but not nearly as large as the mosaic-glass-and-concrete version that Kingman unveiled next to Route 66 on February 9, 2018. Sculpted by Solomon Bassoff, the lifelike reptile artwork is seven feet long and weighs nearly a ton. Its eyes are glass, its claws are solid bronze, and its back -- which is built for sit-down photos -- is inset with the same kind of little multicolor tiles that were popular on American bathroom floors when Route 66 was in its heyday.
