No problem. You have to see the scales under the tail and around the mouth to be able to get a specific ID on them. I would just go with Plestiodon spp.
My bad. Finger must have slipped on the app. I know skinks are reptiles haha. I didn't realize all those looked the same as juvies. I'll switch it to a broader species ID. Thanks.
We also 3 species ( Common five-lined, Southeastern five-lined and broad-headed) that look identical when they are young in Tennessee. I am curious as to how you determined which species this was?
This is a reptile and not an amphibian. I have moved it to the correct category for you.
