Wall Lizard Podarcis muralis Length 14-17cm. Similar to a Common Lizard but has a much longer tail. Most are brown with a variably complete dark stripe down the back and incomplete dark stripes on the sides defining the rich brown flanks. Variable dark marbling is also seen, with additional white marbling in some males. Wall Lizards are native to warmer parts of mainland Europe, and to Jersey. In Britain they have been introduced to the Isle of Portland and undercliffs on the Isle of Wight and S Hampshire coast.
