Wall Lizard

The wall lizard is a small, thin lizard whose scales are highly variable in colour and pattern.
Its coloration is generally brownish or greyish and may occasionally be tinged with green.

This extreme shy reptile prefers to live in rocky environments and likes to take a sunbath on stones to reach its optimum body temperature, which is about 30°C.
