I spotted this lizard (aka Elgaria multicarinata and previously known as Gerrhonotus multicarinatus) in one of my garden containers this afternoon. It is commonly found in gardens in my area. The dark crossbands are particularly striking.
It must be taking a break in between meals of insects and other creatures!
