This guy was laying on my sidewalk earlier enjoying the cold rain - thought he was dead at first, ran inside and grabbed the camera, snapped the shot, then nudged him and he ran off

He's some kind of skink, likely this one. They're brighter colored as juveniles. The stripes are more yellow and they look blacker when they are smaller. Sometimes the tails are colored blue or reddish, but not always. We have tons of those around here. I like them too.

Five-lined Skink
