Description

Specimen was seen on the American River Bike Trail near river mile 8. It was injured but alive and intact. It's back was arched severely. I picked it up to move it to safety and it dropped its tail. I placed it in nearby vegetation but likely saw the same individual crushed on the trail at this location 2 days later.

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.
