Saw this little lizard in the Herculaneum Archaeological Area, Ercolano, Naples, Italy. The Italian Wall Lizard is known for having many, many, many subspecies, and for demonstrating the rapidity with which evolution can take place (see the Wikipedia article).
This lizard was in an archaeological site that had human visitors, but many areas where humans couldn't go, so it had lots of safe havens.
