Description

A young adult Southern Alligator Lizard that I found at the edge of a recently mowed lawn and cinder block wall during the afternoon. I soon managed to corral it into a plastic, white bucket for photos, and released it shortly afterwards.

The snout-vent length was approximately 10.5 cm, with a total length closer to 21 cm, do to the loss of its original tail.

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.
