Ibiza Wall Lizard


The Ibiza Wall Lizard (Podarcis pityusensis) is native to the islands of Ibiza and Formentera, but has become naturalised in parts of Spain. 
It has been introduced to Muella de Palma (Mallorca), Barcelona where it once was assumed it died out but was 're-discovered' in 2007, the town of Aleria in southern Spain and the island of Gaztelugatxe in northern Spain.
It is found at altitudes of up to 475 m above sea level.
This lizard largely inhabits vegetated areas especially in association with man.
As well as gardens, pasture and arable land it is found on rocks, especially near the coast.
On some small islets it may be very common and live almost exclusively on rock.
