I have looked at quite a few photos and I am thinking it is the Oregon Alligator Lizard. In real life the one above looked even more yellow, but these photos seem to look like some of these:

The head shot above really seems to match this one:

Hmm My first thought was a Skink… Kinda like a Schneider’s skink… However, I’m not an expert at all with reptiles… take a look at this photo.. http://www.helsinki.fi/~tuomola/myyoi01.jpg Good Luck finding out what it is

Maybe it’s a Willzard? Just kidding – I have no idea. But I really like that he/she is peeking out to say hello – or to tell you to bug off – in the second one.

No idea what kind of lizard it is. It’s a good thing that you’re not scared to take a photo of it 🙂

Happy WW!

hi Will,
I’ve seen somewhat similar lizards (but not yellow), and based on the shape and tail thickness I call them “lizard snakes”. I would call yours a “yellow lizard snake.” Sorry I can’t be of more help. 🙂
As a kid we used to catch (and release) “blue belly lizards”. We called them that because they have bluish bellies. That’s about all I know about lizards. 🙂

Will, you’re nearly right about it, as it’s one of the subspecies of Oregon Alligator Lizard’s family! By the way, I loved the sharp and beautiful shot.
