Description from Wikipedia

The viviparous lizard or common lizard, Zootoca vivipara (formerly Lacerta vivipara), is a Eurasian lizard. It lives farther north than any other reptile species, and most populations are viviparous (giving birth to live young), rather than laying eggs as most other lizards do. It is the only species in the monotypic genus Zootoca.

Conservation Summary

  • Globally
    Of least concern (LC) (Source: IUCN Red List)
    Zootoca vivipara is listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, tolerance of a broad range of habitats, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
  • Italy
    Lc - minor preoccupazione (Source: IUCN Liste Rosse Italiane)
    Valutata specie a Minor Preoccupazione (LC) perché generalmente non è minacciata, è abbastanza diffusa e localmente frequente, e la possibilità di immigrazione da popolazioni oltre confine riduce ulteriormente la possibilità di estinzione delle popolazioni italiane. Tuttavia la maggior parte delle popolazioni della Pianura Padana sono estinte e le restanti a rischio.
