When I was about twelve years old I caught a glass lizard and didn't even brake his tail I kept him as a pet for 7 years or so before he died. It was the only one I've ever seen in the wild.

I've only seen a couple. Have you found the slender glass lizard? I've not found one yet.

I have had a couple of glass lizards, I bought them though. They lived for a few years and my first one was great, he loved to be held.

Like the monkey tail. The first lizard I remember keeping was a horned toad.

I love the blue tail skinks. It seems half the time they aren't bothered by you as long as you aren't bothering them and will hang out.

Four out of the five species of skink native to VA have blue tails as juveniles. The only native skink that doesn't have a blue tail as a juvenile, is the little brown skink (Scincella lateralis).

I use to catch the little brown ones like crazy they are literally everywhere where I grew up in Suffolk. And in my back yard we had a tree stump that a huge broad head skink seemed to use as a home while I grew up

With the little brown skinks, I hear more than I see. They seem to always rustle in the leaf litter at my feet, until I stop to look for them.

jw, you probably know the answer to this. I found a very small lizard over the summer. He was about an inch and a half long, brown with some darker brownish colored spots and stripes. Unfortunately I didn't get a pic, but I never could figure out what it was. He was actually in my house running over the carpet when I found him, I put him in a small container until I could get him back ouside and but then he disappeared. He was very small, not a newt or salamander, I'm pretty positive it was a lizard unless my eyes were playing tricks on me. When I researched, I thought maybe an Eastern Fence, but I didn't know if they could be that small even as hatchlings.
