Skink? Found in Big Morongo Canyon Preserve.
Long and skinny lizard that moves really fast
Two Gilbert's skinks seen crawling in the brush on the side of the trail up to Mount Woodson at 2:50 PM. There was a male and a female(at least I think, one had an orange head and one didn't) which were following each other around.
