Can be found in a wide range of habitat types including meadows, heathland, coastal dunes, grassland, steppe, subalpine and alpine meadows, shrubland, hedgerows, open woodland, in alpine areas, traditionally managed agricultural land and rural gardens.

i'm really looking forward to seeing this kind !! :)
Yes, it is! Lizards are not my area, but they can be from now! Here in Croatia we have a lot of endemic lizards on islands, a lot of our islands have their lizard, it's because of isolation, and because the Podarcis melisellensis is very variable species...hope will find some of them :D
beautiful specimen !!
