[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Portuguese]
Golden vertically slit eyes with red veins give this burly lizard the look of a mythical creature from a Dungeons and Dragons game. Distinct rows of large tubercles shingle the back, pointed tubercles cover the neck and legs, and whorls of tubercles on the tail, give this lizard a spiny, armored appearance. This is another large, robust species, up to 6 in. (15 cm) TL, with a sandy gray coloration, paler at night. The belly is white with overlapping ventral scales. Males are larger, and have broader heads. It has enlarged, undivided toepads and large bulging eyes with a fixed transparent covering.The Common Wall Gecko is native to coastal Mediterranean region of Europe and Africa.
