Green Lizard

Lacerta bilineata

Although the green lizard is not native to the UK mainland, it is the largest lizard found in the UK. The green lizard has been introduced in a few areas in Southern England where it has bred successfully. The species is common across continental Europe. Males have a larger head and a uniform green colouring punctuated with small spots that are more pronounced upon its back. The throat is bluish in the adult males and to a lesser extent in the females. The females tend to be slightly more brown.
