I rescued this little lizard from my cat the other day and put him in an ice cream pail to show the boys. When my little guy reached in to pick him up, the ungrateful reptile whipped around and tried to bite him, mouth open wide. Crazy thing! Here’s a better picture of him.
He was probably about 7 or 8 inches long (before his tail split off). He looked like a garter snake with legs and his little toes were very sticky. In grass, he slithered the same way a snake would and was quick to tunnel beneath the thatch.
When we let him go, he scrambled over the edge of the log, down and around it’s circumference, and straight into a hole he found in the wood. He was one fast lizard!!!
I spent some time trying to identify him, but came up with nothing. Anyone know what kind he was? I’d love to know!
