Lizard Skin Found While Chipping

While using the chipper on Sunday, I found this lizard skin entangled in one of the dried out plants. It had probably used the branches to scrape it's skin off. It's front legs are intact and if you look closely you can see it's eye. Click on the image to get a bigger version.

Here is what I saw as I was breaking the plant up to stuff into the hopper.

Then I noticed this larger section on the tarp I use to keep the dust down. The leaf wrapped around the skin is now a part of it. Taking the leaf off would almost certainly break the skin.

This is a big alligator lizard - about as big as they get around here.
