Description

same individual seen earlier today, most likely. He left the crevice between wood fence and cinder block wall and moved vertically lower about 3 1/2 feet, East about 12 feet, went near the sage and tomatoes and zucchini, and it looks like he is exploring the space between the retaining wall bricks (sides are angled). I hope he finds a few slugs for dinner- and returns often! First pic shows his tail, second shows him from neck to tail, his head was hidden by the top of the wall cap.

Ran from oregano, then up cinderblock wall, and hid himself between the wall and fence. Wall picture included as size reference. This observation was 35 feet W of earlier observation today. This individual has markings on top of its head, the earlier one's head was more uniformly colored.
