Also known as a choke cherry. They are wonderful to eat. Use tweezers to hold and burn off spines. Slice open with a knife, turn inside out and eat its meager fruit inside. Also a great survival food.
Hi Maria. Still looking for its name, but some said, this was an introduced species and can be planted in yards. Just no clue to the name. (BTW, I shot this under an old profile:)
I agree with the skink possibility.
This is not an alligator lizard. Handled them many times before. This was passive, not aggressive like the alligator. Was able to handle without being bitten.
