Common Lizards

Thursday, June 29th 2023

The only reptile we have on the reserve is the Common Lizard.  Last year we were thrilled to spot some young.  Hopefully, if we are not imagining it, there will be young this year too.  This possibly pregnant female was sunbathing.  Common Lizards are cold blooded and need to warm up in the sun.  They are viviparous, meaning that the eggs develop inside the female's body and she gives birth to live young in July and August.

Another lizard was seen close by but as usual the pesky vegetation got in the way!
