Found this one as i almost closed the door on him! Luckily I spotted him (or her..) just in time. About 6 inches long including the tail!


In the downstairs lobby of our block!

It could be, yes. The only thing is the feet are pretty big for it's size, with very long toes! I didn't capture it very well (had to zoom in with my phone) but when i saw it I thought it looked like an amphibian, because of the feet! We live very near a sandy beach, and have very hot summers and very wet winters, if that helps with the habitat. Also it was in the downstairs lobby near a pool, so there is alot of water about. We also live near a big murky pond! I hope someone can id it as I am very curious!

That's and amazing tail - maybe it's a type of skink.
