This little critter is in my worm box, probably enjoying the safety, the dark, the moisture, and the endless buffet of bugs and other goodies. Anyone know what it is? Or even which reference took I should consult?
It's about ten centimeters from nose to tail, a bit grayer than this photo indicates (the flash was necessary since the box is under a deck, made of black plastic, and its floor is covered with worm "castings").
I have seen similar reptiles in my worm box in past years, but this is the first time I took a photo.
Salamander? Skink? Newt?
