[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The island of Madeira is not very rich in animal species. However, many of them are endemics occuring nowhere else in the world. Recently I presented the endemic butterfly Hipparchia maderensis
Today I want to show you an endemic lizard of Madeira:
- Teira dugesii
- family: Lacertidae

Madeiran Wall Lizard

The species is rather variable with respect to coloration. I will show other specimens later.

Madeira, between Bica da Cana and the Pinacula, a spectacular formed rock, emerging from the forest.

Lieber Peter,
Eidechsen haben es eher schwer auf TN, aber ich mag diese Kreaturen und finde sie auch sehr fotogen. Dein Exemplar ist eine sehr hübsche kleine endemische Eidechse mit einem so milden Ausdruck. Wie üblich fein fotografiert.
Herzlich grüsst
