What type of lizard could it be?

Home More advice Home & Garden

Yesterday I was at my aunt's house in Pheonix, Alabama. She has trees, plants and shrubbery around her house. She also has a few holes at the foundation of her house, where you could stick half of your shoe in. What my aunt and cousin seen was about a foot long, has a dull color and could raise it's body off the ground like an alligator does and it's really fast. I'm trying to figure out what it is so that maybe I could catch it and have took'n somewhere else because they don't want it on the property and it's been digging in their yard. Can anybody give me some guesses? Thanks!
