Northern alligator lizards are one of the more unusual species that inhabit my local eco-system.  Unfortunately, they are also one of the most elusive so it was with no small measure of excitement that I spotted a tiny little baby lizard this afternoon.  Less than an inch and a half, or three centimeters, the little creature was flitting along the cracks in the driveway as I came back from a walk. It was so small and delicate, and very cute but was probably a tempting treat to some of the other wildlife around.  I hope he or she makes it.
