GREEK ALGYROIDES

Not a great name for a lizard. A lizard that is endemic to Greece, relatively small, quite variable in colouration and one we found basking on roads or scuttling very quickly into shrubbery quite a lot during the fortnight. I'm afraid to say I couldn't get to these quick enough (or close enough) to take a decent photo, so I've lifted a picture from the web, of an example of this species photographed in Corfu, by someone with more patience, time and skill (obviously) than me, not to mention a camera, and not a phone!

I had a touch of the algyroides once. Nasty business. Some Mount Ainosol cleared it up, though.
