The Coachella Valley Fringe-toed Lizard, Uma inornata, is a Californian species of lizard. It is listed as an endangered species in California, a threatened species in the United States and the IUCN classifies it as endangered.

The Coachella Valley Fringe-toed Lizard is restricted to habitats with fine, windblown sand deposits in the sandy plains of the Coachella Valley, Riverside County, California. Since the 1970s, estimates of this species' habitat have decreased by approximately 75 percent. This may be due to human activities.

The species is well adapted to its desert habitat, it has a wedged-shaped nose which enables it to burrow through loose, fine sand, elongated scales cover the ears to keep out blowing sand, and specialized nostrils that allow it to breathe below the sand without inhaling sand particles.


The Coachella Valley National Wildlife Refuge, for the Coachella Valley Fringe-toed Lizard, is contained within the , and Indio Hills Palms State Reserve, located east of Palm Springs near Palm Desert, California, in the Colorado Desert region of the Sonoran Desert.
