Re: OT: Italian Wall Lizards in Connecticut
Cool Daniel, thanks for sharing. Podarcis are very adaptable lizards. We have a fairly recently discovered population here in NJ too, although I think they may be a different subspecies than the NY population? There used to be a population along some railroad tracks in Philadelphia, but they were thought to have been wiped out by a fire in the area years ago.
Here is a cool video of a similar species, the Lilford's wall lizard on one of the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean.
