Italian Wall Lizard

Podarcis sicula


I saw many of these Italian Wall Lizards at a local bird sanctuary, and even in the gardens of the surrounding neighborhood. They sit very still, and blend in well. I wouldn't notice them until we were too close. They would skitter off, drawing my attention. This was the only one who retreated to a spot where I could still photograph him.

I've seen these by me but they are so crafty I've yet to get a photo
