SAND LIZARD (Lacerta agilis): SPECIES ACCOUNT

Wall and rock lizards live in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the East Indies.

Wall and rock lizards are very common in dry areas, such as deserts, but some species make their homes in forests or in very cold areas, such as grasslands high up in the mountains or in far northern lands inside the Arctic Circle. They are also found on some Atlantic Ocean islands, including the Canaries off northern Africa, Sri Lanka (or Ceylon) off the southern tip of India, and the British Isles.

People usually leave these lizards alone, but long ago, some humans hunted and ate the giant lizards of the Canary Islands.
