Eastern Glass Lizard

Ophisaurus ventralis

Description:

Often confused as a snake, the Eastern glass lizard is a true lizard --not a snake--, despite its not having traditional lizardy legs. And yes, I just typed "lizardy". This species is fairly common throughout central Florida. There was a particularly dense population at Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge in the mid-2000s. [janson jones http://dusttracks.com]
