This pic is of Victor (Italian Wall lizard) in the geraniums after he committed a terrible crime.
On the 18th, I saw Victor sunning himself on the small lattice near the porch. I ran to get my camera and, when I returned, saw him jump down, cross the driveway and pounce on a small Italian lizard. As he began to eat the small lizard, he dragged it back across the driveway and into the geraniums. I heard a bit of rustling and then silence. Eventually, Victor appeared amongst the leaves looking for a toothpick and a cup of coffee. YUCK. The picture is of him after his meal.
These photos were taken by Edward Weisberger. He has seen Italian Wall Lizards on his property since he moved in 4 years ago. Often sees these lizards sunbathing on his patio by his fire pit.
seen at the bottom of the gorge, in a dry section of the Flumineddu river
very common at the bottom of the Gorroppu gorge
Podarcis is a genus of lizards. Its members look very similar to lizards of the genus Lacerta, but their internal body structure is different. They are commonly known as wall lizards. They are native to Europe and northern Africa, and most species are restricted to the Mediterranean region. The Italian wall lizard and the common wall lizard have been introduced to North America.
