Lacerta pamphylica (Pamphylian Lizard) [Pamfilya/Antalya Yeşil Kertenkelesi]

Pamphylian Lizard is a monotypic and also endemic green lizard species to the SW Anatolia (Antalya province). It is distributed coastal regions and northern slope of Taurus Mts. It has an unique colouration –especially on dorsum and neck- separating it from the closely related species L. trilineata (Balkan Green Lizard) and L. media (Eastern Green Lizard). The species name came after the region name, Pamphylia, including a part of the south of Asia Minor in ancient geography, between Lycia and Cilicia, extending from the Mediterranean to Mount Taurus (modern day Antalya province, Turkey).

Hi Ozgur,a magnificent capture of this lizard,fantastic details and beautiful birght colors too,i like yor composition whit the lizard on the right,original and loveable! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hello Ozgur,
What a gorgeous lizard you present to us today. The colors are so beautiful and I really like the low POV. It would be nice to see the entire lizard, but then I'm sure the fine detail revealed in this close-up would be lost. Well done!!


Bu kadar renkli bir türün ülkemizde yaşadığını bilmiyordum. Renkleri ve netliği çok güzel yakalamışsınız, keşke tamamı kareye sığabilseymiş...

Tfs. Ve hoşgeldiniz.
