Lizards, these fantastic reptiles are one of the unique animals that can be found here in Cyprus. There are also Geckos and Cicadas as well as the amazing creature known as the Mediterranean chameleon. But, this is a lizard, quite a large one and it was completely still, like it was frozen.
The lizard stood face to face with its eyes fixed on my dog Felicia. The shadow you see in the picture below are her ears which look very large in comparison to the other animal.
They are incredibly fast, in the blink of an eye it was suddenly gone so I’m glad I managed to get close enough to take photos. It’s exciting to walk in nature, you never know what’s waiting around the corner.
