We visited this Island whilst we were on hoilday. We got told it was full of Lizards and they were not wrong! It was crawling with lots of different species.

The observation looks to be from Illa sa Dragonera and therefore the lizard will be Podarcis lilfordi gigliolii

Island name

The Island is called 'Sa Dragonera' Island of the west point of Majorca. This transplates as 'The Dragon' Island I think. It is a nature park and there is boat trips across to it from San Malo.

Sa Dragonera

Yes, thought so. The lizard will be Lilford's wall lizard Podarcis lilfordi gigliolii. There are not many of Lilford's wall lizards left on mainland Mallorca due to introduced species competing with and preying upon them, but there are several different subspecies on the little islands around the coast.
