 Wild Blue-Tailed Skink in Indiana?

More than a year ago, I found a tiny lizard with a blue tail in a head of lettuce. I put it outside the kitchen window. I just found it again--Iím assuming itís the same one--about 3-4 inches long, in the garden where Iíd put it. Itís gotten through at least one Southern Indiana winter. Should I just leave it be? Or is it another type of lizard? It looks like the pictures of the blue-tailed skink?
PS. I know nothing about lizards.

Thanks,
Chris

    the burrow underground and hybernate so im sure it will do well in the wild. they also hate to be handled so if it lets u catch it and handle it then it might not be a blue tail. also i doubt its the same one, they usually are every where around houses

    these special lizards live EVERYWHERE. it possibly is the same one becuase they hibernate where they live. BLUE TAILS DO NOT MIGRATE

    i have found out that some lizards (including blue tails) can attract a male or a female....(more than one). not all of them mate. these types of lizards create little collenies or groups.
