Not sure if it's alive. Usually they take off very rapidly. Had my dog and didn't get a chance to investigate it. It was about 2" as is.

Description

Blue hue and tip of tail was bluish - it was dusk so I didn't get a real clear picture. Hiding under a bird bath in a very damp, dark part of my yard.

Description

Very small, about an inch to an inch and a half long, found under a planter. I thought it was a snake at first, I guess it had it's legs tucked in.
