Legless lizard by my house

I keep seeing this guy near my porch this whole week.  I think he might live close by.  At first I thought that it was a snake.  So i took a few pictures and showed it to people online.  Turns out that this is Florida Legless Lizard or Glass Lizard  ( Ophisaurus ventralis ).

For someone without legs, this guys moves ok.  I guess he won't let his handicap get in a way of his life.   Still, i wish he woud do a better job catching bugs, because there is way too many of them here.
