it could be that its just fully grown.... lizards don’t shed as much when they are full grown, or it could be maybe he has you just didint notice.
but again it could be because he is full grown, they shed to help them grown and make room... its like you wearing the same size cloths from when you were born and soon your gonna need a different size then one day you will always be the same size pretty much, but you will want new cloths, so the lizards shed and grow till one day they dont need to shed as much.

Yeah, he shed 3-4 times the first year. I figured he was full grown. So it was a surprise to see him shedding again. I thought he was full grown. He is a big healthy boy.

their the same kind of lizard, but different species, they resemble each other a little but are different. western fence lizards get longer then easterns. they slightly have different patterns and coloration too.
western fence lizards are found in southwestern Oregon, southwestern Idaho, Nevada, western Utah, northwestern Baja California, Arizona, and some of the islands off the coast of both California and Baja California.
while eastern fence lizards are found in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Kentucky, Southern Illinois, Southern Indiana, Tennessee, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Missouri, West Virginia, Mississippi, Delaware, northern Florida, and southern New Jersey.

so pretty much the difference is in their name... western fence lizards are found along the west coast of the USA and eastern fence lizards are found on the eastern part of the country

well its like that with all species pretty much.... each type of lizard has a genus name, and under the genus name is a species of that lizard and then their are sub-species of that lizard.
it like say you have a garter snake, or a fence lizard or a anole. their are different kinds (species) of them then some species have sub-species . EXAMPLE - anoles. their are differenst species, brown anoles, green anoles, the different genus
Anolis
Chamaelinorops
Deiroptyx
Ctenonotus – Eastern Antillean (or Antillian) anole
Audantia
Dactyloa – South American anole
Norops
Xiphosurus –
all of these are anoles, and each one has sub species, like green anoles, and brown anoles belong to the genus anolis, and some species have sub species like green anole (Anolis carolinensis) has 2 sub species,
the
Anolis carolinensis carolinensis (northern green anole)
Anolis carolinensis seminolus (southern green anole)
each subspecies has different DNA
in a way its like with humans- we are all humans but were all related in a way, but theirs different kinds, theirs white , black, chinese, indian, native ect, and then under each of those theirs different families,

it all goes like this in scientific way
Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Reptilia
Order: Squamata
Family: Polychrotidae
Genus: Anolis
Species: Anolis carolinensis
sub-species: Anolis carolinensis carolinensis

i dont know if you will understand this. haha but their it is its hard for even me, and others, its alot of big word that are hard to remember

Sorry to burst your bubble but your lizard might be a girl, from the picture u posted, it looks like a girl to me. Shedding is totally, normal, my western fence is going through the process right now. Just dont pick at her scales, and avoid handling her.
