Nice job Ruby! I'm so proud of you, you are now an iNaturalist!
Both Southern and Northern Alligator Lizards occur in Sonoma County. According to Californiaherps:
"Northern and Southern Alligator lizards are very similar in appearance, but observing the color of the eye and the position of the dark stripes on the belly can help you differentiate them."
The eye on yours appears yellow.
