I was taking photos of plants in my garden and turned around and here was this creature. It did not move while I took photos. I have never seen it before in my garden. It must be a foot long. Hopefully it will remain in my garden and eat little pesty bugs. Is it a rather big lizard? Thanks for any responses. Xuling

Thanks SteveOh for the info. I will investigate. How odd it is that such a large lizard just appeared in my yard that afternoon. And I have not seen it since. Xuling
