Confidence: I'm as sure as I can be.
Notes: This one was first spotted swimming in the water of a small upland stream, it dashed under an over hanging bank. I thought I had seen a newt or a lamprey- I saw a yellow lamprey once before about the same size as this. Dont know if it dropped into the water by mistake when I walked past but thats where I first saw it, a swimming lizard. I set up the pic after I caught it under the bank, sitting just out of the water as in 2nd pic.
