My family now lives at my parents-in-law's home until we move to Canada in a few months. While here, I help out a little with farm work - my 75 year old father-in-law often finds me too slow for his liking. We recently dug up 'pig potatoes' tubers and I found this lizard that had managed to survive being buried by the plow - or maybe it was in a tunnel that was cut open - and was hesitant to move. I carried it off the field and took a few pictures.
I think it is Takydromus amurensis but chose not to abuse it further by cleaning it off to examine its scale colours and pattern.
