A skink(not a skank)

I took Peanut to a park yesterday and noticed a funny looking lizard.

My field guide says it a striped racerback anole but I've heard people call them skinks.

**Correction: it's not an anole, it's a Rainbow Blue Tailed Skink. oops

What an interesting picture! I don't think I've ever seen one of those.

TOTALLY better than a skank.

It's beautiful. The skAnk next-door to me is ugly and doesn't even have a blue tail. (As far as I know.)
