Description

This lizard was underneath a plastic bucket that was moved to a different location... It was about 9 inches from head to tail, if not longer. It was a muddy brown color at its head and tail, and in between it did have black bands on its scales. Other colors that I noticed in the pattern were yellow and brown. Its eyes were yellow, and it did have tiny holes in the sides of its head. It had the tiniest fingers and toes, and the nails were visible when it was picked up by the owner of the house carefully. It was very still when it was uncovered, and I found out that it eats insects as its main food. It is native to the Pacific coast of Northern America (Wikipedia) and has been see frequently throughout Southern California.

Description

Evidently I'm supposed to LEAP for these things, nab them, then photograph their bellies. Right.

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.
