Here they are!

After a rather cold winter for our mediterranean conditions it seems that finally spring and warmer temperatures are near.

A good sign that this was a correct perception was a Moorish Wall Gecko (Tarentola mauretanica) of a good size that I found on our garden wall getting used to the new season. This a more nocturnal lizard but this one was outside while there was still some light. I rushed for my macro and celebrated the first reptile of the year!
