Apologies for the poor focusing. A friend sent me this pic today, taken while he was hiking a local trail. 

Amazing. I didn’t even know we had these skinks in our area. How cool is that tail?

One was on my property on the upper westside about two years ago. Also a big surprise. I vaguely knew what it was from some previous life experience. But the color IS astonishing. Here is some more: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Western_skink

I saw one of these reptiles in my garden on the Eastside a couple of years ago. I made raised beds out of rocks, and occasionally see things running in and out. If only I could entice a couple of gopher snakes to set up residence. I have a lot of food to offer....if anyone knows how to acquire gopher snakes, I would be very happy to know.

It's so surprising to see that little flash of blue on the ground. This photo is about life-sized.
