Lizards in Cyprus

The agama Stellagama stellio cypriaca, is a common species on Cyprus.


Relatively common on Cyprus, but I was still surprised and delighted to find two Mediterranen chamelians during our 10-day stay. This particular individual was at the top of an almond tree but the first I saw was walking around the edge of our swimming pool (see below).





Pretty sure that this is a Cyprus endemic, Phoenicolacerta troodica, Troodos lizard.


Snake-eyed lizard Ophisops elegans.
