My daughter Arianna and granddaughter Lillith were looking for rollie pollies at the front yard of the house. When they overturned a rock the lizard came from under the soil. It was very active and strong.

"I found 2, the yellow and the silver, but my dog brought one to me the previous week (missing one end), but it was a silver one too. Don't know if there are more as I stopped raking and covered them back up when I found those 2."
