Wall Lizard
Lézard des murailles

Order: Squamata
Family: Lacertidae
Genus: Podarcis
Size: ca 25cm
Distribution: Mainly central Europe
Habitat: Rocky places, urban environment

Interesting to know that the greatest population of these Wall Lizards north of the Alps is living at the train Station of Zurich in Switzerland!

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

Hello Anne,
WOW, what a splendid close view of a beautiful Wall Lizard! Great DOF, sharp details and beautiful light. I really like the framing too. I'm really envious! I've only managed to spot one here once and it disappeared very quickly!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla
