Description

Found in a plastic box (which I am guessing it could not escape from once it somehow got itself in there) with clothing bound for charity. It was sluggish, so I set the box on its side gave it some water and left it in the shade for a few hours while I did laundry. I checked on it several times and watched it drink (the tongue is sticking out to drink in the photo), but it never left, so I gently slid it out of the box among my small collection of potted plants and it was still in the area last I checked just before the sun went down.

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.
