Lizard

ocellated lizard

The ocellated lizard (Timon lepidus) is a relatively large reptile, reaching 60 cm or more in length, one of the biggest european species. The one in the photo was a little less than 40 cm, I guess. It is VERY aggressive and readily bites, humans included, and even if its teeth do not seem particularly impressive they are very sharp, the experience is quite painful.

    Really a fantastic shot. The skin is beautiful with the blue colour spots ❤
    Happy week,

    • Yes, the lizard was a bit scary. I would prefer the photo to be from a lower level, to be more eye to eye with the lizard, but did not dare to lay on the ground that close to him. 🙂

  2. Uau! Fantástico.
    Sempre aqui venho, fico com uma enorme dor de cotovelo. Apesar de tudo, até acho que era melhor ser mordido pelo largarto do que sentir esta dor de cotovelo.
