Description

Found under a rock surrounded by brush near an oak tree and junipers. Tail came off while trying to catch it. Slight blue coloration on underside of tail makes me believe that it is a juvenile.

Description

About 14cm long, in courtyard next to our home. Never seen anything like this on our land before. Moved with snake like propulsion. Seemed to be emerging from hibernation. If my ID is correct, this species is only found in Eastern Europe, so as far as I know, it's not known in Iberia.

Description

Found in a field under a rotten chair near Ashkelon in Israel on a hot, dry sunny day. I found a nest of them. I managed to catch an adult who quickly dropped its squirming tail. It was a beautiful light brown colour about 10 inches long. It tried to bite me but was quite painless. I promptly let it go.

Description

Amongst the grass in a blackberry farm. Although I only managed to take a picture of the anterior portion, it was far thinner and longer than a Chalcides bedriagai, which doesn't occur in this area.

Together with several other lizard families, including Lacertidae (the "true" or wall lizards), they comprise the superfamily or infraorder Scincomorpha. With more than 1500 described species, the Scincidae are the most diverse family of lizards.
