Single adult specimen was found sitting on a paved road.
I chased after this little skink, but it retreated into a bunch of poison ivy... Ah well.

97 in shade. Under log by tadpole pond in east metro park. Chased it onto a sandy trail. It couldn't move well in the sand.
The Little Brown Skink (Scincella lateralis), also known as the Ground Skink (which may refer to any Scincella species however), is a small species of skink found throughout much of the eastern half of the United States, and into northern Mexico.
