Is it a skink or not?

Well, I thought I’d switch things up a bit and show you a tiny lizard instead of a big bad gator for once!  I took this photo near my daughter’s school the other day.  The big bad web tells me this is a blue-tailed skink.  Of course, even the internet is known to misinform me from time to time, so if you have a better name for this guy or gal, feel free to share!   Happy Saturday! 🙂

  1. You’re right, Sarah. This is a blue-tailed skink. When I first moved to Florida, one appeared in our tent on day. It almost sent me home (I’d come from Michigan) until I realized it was more scared of me and it also more than eats its weight in bugs each day. It can change colors from orange to blue as well. I’ve seen them up to six inches.
