Thank you NeilD and ForestDragon!
I agree with Neil. I think this is a five-lined skink.
Close call between the five-lined and the broad-headed. I zoomed in on this photo in Aperture and dug into a field guide. Had to look at the scales just in front of that white/gray spot on the right side of its neck. Based on the 2 little scales I saw in front of that spot, leads me to believe its a five-lined. Broad-headed skinks don't have those two scales.
It looks like a five lined skink but also looks like the northern coal skink lol
Not sure if this is a Five-lined Skink or Broad-headed Skink?
