This little guy was 3" plus his tail almost as long. He has a pretty blue chin and ventral blue markings and yellow under his arms.
From Wikipedia: It is found in grassland, broken chaparral, sagebrush, woodland, coniferous forest, and farmland. This one was found in an urban native plant and succulent garden.
I found this lizard completely torpid, and wondered if it was dead. I put it somewhere safe from my cat and from birds, and an hour later it was gone -- so I guess it was OK.
