Southeastern Five-lined Skink (Plestiodon spp. likely inexpectatus)

CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Southeastern Five-lined Skink (Plestiodon spp. likely inexpectatus)

Quick sleek lizard that eats beetles, wood roaches, grasshoppers and other insects you’d likely be glad to be rid of. You can generally find them warming in the early morning sun. Juveniles have blue tails. This may be Plestiodon fasciatus although it seems their range ends in northern Florida.
