It almost looks like a broad headed skink (Eumeces laticeps) to me. I'd still like to see a larger image to be more certain. It's documented range does extend well into north Texas. Anybody else?

::THe only problem is that one would need a +25.00 Diopter lens to see it? Please post a MUCH larger picture and we'll all try to help you.

:::I found this young man (or woman) outside my back door last week. I have since found out he brought his friends! I like him as he is eating all my bugs but I have lived here 13 years and it's the first time I have seen any skinks.
:::What kind of skink is it? - I live in North Texas.
