Colorful hill lizard.

Large Lizard Statue

Out close to the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge there is a large lizard up on a hill on HWY 49 on the north side of the road. It is very easy to miss if you are not looking. I am pretty sure the town is Medicine Park, OK. I believe it is on private property, but there is a very steep and rocky road close by that can be driven on to take pictures.
