This is by far the rarest and coolest herp I’ve found at LLELA, especially since this is the first observation of one on iNaturalist! I had been wondering if the nearby ephemeral pond could be suitable habitat for small-mouthed salamanders, and conditions were just right (55 degrees Fahrenheit overcast and heavy rains the day before) to find this individual under a log. Some interesting behaviors I saw from this individual were lifting up and wagging its tail in the air and producing a little chirp sound. Last picture is as flipped

This observation is for the skink. I am only sure of the genus level. Ran it by a herpetologist (Carl Franklin) He thinks it possibly is a prairie skink, Plestiodon septentrionalis but cannot swear to that. It was caught in a blackland prairie area.
