Subspecies

Given the location it's probably G.g.galloti. It looks like a female which are less distinctive.

Miked, you may be interested in looking at my observation of the La Palma Lizard, they have wonderful blue markings.When were were in La Palma the lizards were everywhere and great fun to observe. We were told by the locals that feral cats are deliberately encouraged near banana plantations to control the lizards as they damage the banana crop!
