Description

Southern alligator lizard atop plywood behind a taller sheet of plywood. This photo is rotated, should be long plywood edge going from top to bottom, gray plywood to the right of it, and the lizards blurry face is on the side of the shorter plywood on the right. Sorry, iPhone and flashlight photo isn't very clear. This lizards tail is re growing and he is fairly small, my guess is bigger than a year old, so maybe 2? On a scale of 1 to 5 of those I've seen, I'd say he's a 3 in size.

Description from Wikipedia

Anguidae is a large and diverse family of lizards native to the northern hemisphere. The group includes the slowworms, glass lizards, and alligator lizards, among others. Anguidae is divided into three subfamilies and contains 94 species in eight genera. They have hard osteoderms beneath their scales, and many of the species have reduced or absent limbs, giving them a snake-like appearance, although others are fully limbed.

No range data available.
