For the record I was holding it gently, not squeezing it. It was just adamant about trying to bite me.

Alligator lizards seem to ALL be adamant about biting the hand that holds them in my experience.

I find they also follow the bite with a nice big poop. If I ever find our positions reversed I hope I respond with as much gusto.
