Another Lizard Encounter

We came home from the store about noon to find this lizard in the driveway. He walked off into the grass when he saw us but was nice enough to stick around so I could get a few photos.

He’s probably about a foot long, and able to run and jump easily. He was calm enough to stay in the grass for a while even though there were a couple humans near him. I think he might be a Central American Whiptail lizard. That is the closest match I could find by searching on Google, so if anyone knows more please let me know.

We seem to be going into the dry season, so I wonder if we are going to see other interesting critters that we haven’t been seeing before.
