A lively adult close to the spot where I recently found a road-killed individual. Slow down on those dirt roads folks!
Very dark and skittish individual. Identified by eye color and distinctly keeled back scales.
One of two seen this day in this area.
"We found this lizard on April 26, 2015 in our backyard. It was around 5pm I think. It hung out for a while then crawled under the fence into our neighbors yard.
"We've had other lizards in our yard and once one was stuck in our BBQ a few years back but I hadn't taken photos. Now that we know about this program we will participate :) Thank you!!"

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.
