A what now?

So, I was moving boxes down to the garage today preparing for our little move when I came across this guy, just having himself a meal by the mailboxes. Never seen anything like this here before.

Yeah, that's a big lizard he's chowing down on. I ran back home, frantically told Bryson and Angele that I needed the camera because there was a big snake outside and ran back out again. He was still there, contemplating his next move. They came out to have a look and ran to get more people to show. I got up close to take a few more pictures and spooked him. He lifted his whole upper portion of his body and backed into the bushes like a dolphin at Sea World, still holding on to that lizard. Here's a close up:
