There's a Skink in My Yard!

(That was supposed to be a reference to Toy Story when Woody says "There's a snake in my boot!") Anyway, I believe that this is a common five-lined skink. We've seen bunches of them around the house this week. This one still long enough for me to get a picture! I think he's really cute. :)
And this is our dog, Nute, trying to find the skinks moving around under the tarp. He was not successful.
