Description

So this one, is unknown to me, I was under the impression they are not that far east. I am not sure which one it is exactly. Unfortunately this was not found alive, and someone else had showed me this thinking it was a dead baby red racer..... but as you can see it is not!

The lizard was in a very small patch of dead leaves at the end of a driveway. I photographed it and released it in a similar habitat in the backyard.
