Reptilian love


The exquisite and endemic Peloponnese Wall Lizards Podarcis peloponnesiacus lais from Achaia, north Peloponnese, basking together on their favourite rock. You can see here the phyletic dimorphism of the species on size and pattern. The female was on the process of shedding her skin and was constantly scraping the snout on the rock. Her head is more whitish than normal because of the changing skin.
