Really strange to find this guy in a bushel overhanging part of a creek. One false move and would've gone aquatic!

Description

"This lizard keeps appearing in my kitchen. There is a large hole around the outlet behind the stove. I'm assuming it can get out if it wants to that way, but I'm not sure. It seems comfortable with me, it lets me get close, but won't let me catch it. Last night it crawled up on the stove and slept there all night! Funny little guy." - Stephanie Rogoff

Was watering the mint and he moved up onto the fence, then moved down to the gap between the wooden fence and block wall- right below his feet.
First photo shown for size reference, this individual is not real small, not adult. Cinder blocks are just under 8 inches high.

Description

"Here are three pictures of a lizard we found in our home. The first picture shows the lizard camouflaged and laying on top of a rock. It is very hard to see, but we used our flash in the second picture and you can see its face poking out of the brick. The final picture is of shed skin. This is the third skin we have found in our garage. It is always in the same location." - Cesar Sanchez
