I opened up the van to get hay, and found this little guy! He didn't seem concerned in the least with my presence.

When I started moving hay around he scurried up towards the front of the van, under some of the bales. Probably not a good move on his part. Hopefully he'll find his way back out again.

A friend has identified this little guy as an Alligator Lizard - the only lizards that live in this area.

Cute little guy! Any idea what it is? How big was he? Hard to tell from the photo. I don't think I've ever seen anything bigger than a tiny salamander in my suburban yard...

It's an Alligator lizard, about 7" long. I understand it is the only kind of lizard we have in this part of the world.
