This dead lizard was on the path where I was taking my after lunch walk one day last week in College Park, Maryland. It was stiff and dry, surrounded by crusts of red stuff, probably its blood. It had been dead for many hours. This was a path frequented by bikes and one of them had apparently done it in.
If I am not mistaken, it is a five-lined skink (Eumeces fasciatus). Let my shoe be the scale.
The previous entry in this series of hiking path casualties was a northern brown snake.
