Bedriaga’s rock lizard is a member of the Lacertidae family, a diverse group of reptiles that are sometimes called the ‘true lizards’ (4). With its long, flattened body, powerful, well-developed limbs and elongated toes, the agile Bedriaga’s rock lizard is built for speed (4) (5). Small scales cover the robust trunk, tail, and neck, becoming larger on the conical-shaped head (5). Adults are typically a brownish-grey, with a dark lined net pattern on the back. During the breeding season, the smaller male develops a blue belly, with blue spots on the sides, and the net pattern fades into a scattering of white spots. Juveniles are distinguished by a bright blue tail (6).
