In Ireland: Our Only Reptile

Ireland has one reptile species roaming the land and they are the beautiful common lizard.DSCN0919

It’s very odd for a cold blooded creature to live in Ireland, a cold, rainy little island but they hibernate and bask during the summer months. They are found all across the county in various habitats.

I think it’s amazing we have these beautiful creatures, mind where you step and remember they are protected against capture so don’t take one home!

This is the beautiful female we found, for more information you can visit here.
