Italian Wall Lizard

Podarcis sicula


There were many of these lizards there, basking in the sun to warm up. They seemed to stay out of the house; however, one day my mom found one in her tub and started screaming, and apparently I was the only one who was not scared of lizards there ;) It was pretty hard to catch it on the slippery surface, and after a few minutes I had a lizard without its tail in my hand. When I freed it outside and came back for the tail it was still moving :)
