Sharp-snouted Rock Lizard

Dalmatolacerta oxycephala


There are two main colour forms; in lowland regions the body is greyish-buff with a brown reticulated pattern and the tail is boldly striped transversely in black and turquoise-green; in upland areas and on some offshore islands the colour is much darker and may be completely black.


The sharp-snouted rock lizard (Lacerta oxycephala) is a species of lizard in the family Lacertidae. It is found in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro, and possibly Albania, where its natural habitats are Mediterranean-type shrubby vegetation, rocky areas, rocky shores, rural gardens, and urban areas.
