First sighting of baby alligator lizard this year. See previous observations of mating pairs, within 50 ft of this spot. This one is near cottonwood leaves and flax stems/seed pods. Trash container included for size reference. About 1/2 hour earlier, probably the same lizard saw me before I saw him and he ran into the drain pipe very quickly.
In my garage this afternoon. At least 7 inches long

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.
