BLUE TAILED LIZARD— What kind of a reptile is this: length 6 inches; body black and white streaks on the side, brown on the back; tail 3 inches long and indigo - black?
While your description is incomplete, I think it must he a variety of the “blue-tailed lizard,” also known as the “skink,” “blue-tailed skink” and “swift.” It is a remarkably active creature, and can vanish so quickly when alarmed that it just seems to ‘‘fade away.”
