Also known as the common lizard, it is found throughout Europe and northern Asia, including China and Japan. This lizard lives farther north than any other species of non-marine reptile. They have a wide range of colors, and their skin is covered in tiny scales that form spots and stripes on their body to help them blend in with their surroundings.
These lizards feed on invertebrates, focusing on cicadas, spiders, and mealworms. Viviparous lizard populations are considered stable, but the species is protected in some countries within its range. Their main threat is habitat loss due to urbanization, farming, and tourism development.
