Common Lizard (Lacerta vivipara)

This little fellow was basking in the sun today at the Colomba Hall, Port Ellen. He seemed totally undaunted by the presence of the many visitors to the Made on Islay Craft Market.

Someone has obviously tried to pick him or her up because it has lost its tail, but, don't worry - it'll grow another one! Clever, eh?

  1. You beat me to it Becky - I saw a lizard run across the road in front of my bike near the top of Storakaig this afternoon - which is not a particularly common sight. Mine did have a tail though...
