    I found this one in leaf litter in my back yard. It is almost a leggless lizard, the legs being reduced to stumps with some bumps for toes.
    Possibly Saiphos equalis.

    Very nice.
    Hard to tell, but also consider a Delma impar (Striped Legless Lizard) ?

    It is rather small and I think def a skink, delmas are a different family.
    Eastern mulch slider – Lerista fragilis is another possibility and pretty common apparently.
