Male Common Lizard (more below)

A few more images of my local Lizards, this time shots of a male. Previous images were of females, told by the orangy colouring to the underparts (see lowest images below). Some of the shots show the Lizard around the hole in the bank in which it spends the nights before moving out the areas of bare earth in the mornings to warm up.


The bottom most image shows the tail of one the females. Lizards can shed part of the tail if caught by a predator to allow escape, they can then regrow a tail, though it never as long and the scales differ in colour and size from the original.


Sorry for the lack of updates and comments, things are very busy at home at the moment.
