I know the pics are too bad to get a species ID on this, but I was surprised to see a skink outside an academic building at Earlham College.
Skinks are lizards belonging to the family Scincidae. Together with several other lizard families, including Lacertidae (the "true" or wall lizards), they comprise the superfamily or infraorder Scincomorpha. With more than 1500 described species, the Scincidae are the most diverse family of lizards.
