Rudolph the Red-nosed Skink

Rudolph the Red-nosed Skink
Had a very shiny nose
And if you ever saw it
You would even say it glows

This individual is either a Broad-headed Skink (Plestiodon laticeps) or an adult male Common Five-lined Skink (Plestiodon fasciatus); it is probably the former, as indicated by a field marker used to differentiate the two species.
