Tiny Lizard

Jacob spotted this little guy the other day. To give a bit of scale, that is a nailhead on the left.

I have only briefly seen this particular species (Eastern Fence Lizard) before, most likely due to its diminutive size. I'm used to seeing the five lined skinks, particularly in the juvenile form with the electric blue tail. This little guy is not nearly as showy with its grey scaly skin.

However it is very cute
