    from south florida,
    if that information can help
     

  3. the problem with south florida is there are so many non native species, if i were to put my finger on it i would say its part of the spiny lizard, or swift family Sceloporus. or possible one of the curly tailed lizards, Leiocephalus. can you give me a reference for size please?
     
  4. also does its stomach bear any blue patches? it looks strikingly like one of the fence lizards, which are part of the spiny lizard family or a female of the hispanola curly tail

    Looks like the fence lizards we have in Nebraska, but I am no expert, I just used to catch them when I was younger... :)

    I am guessing about 5-7 inches. (If it is the same kind we have around here). Cute lil buggers, if ya flip em over real fast in your hand, they kinda "trance out" and just lay there for awhile :)
