No photo. The lizard was moving too fast to take a photo. Found under a stone, it quickly moved to litter and an adjacent rock.

Description

One of three Anniella seen within 5m of each other. All were in sand and found mostly buried beneath cover objects. We have had two early season rainstorms in the past month, with the first being the remnants of a tropical storm that dropped at least an inch at this location. I think the recent rain is what brought so many to the surface.
