(Lacerta agilis)

40. The Sand Lizard

This lizard is a southern species so far as the British Isles are concerned, being as its name suggests a creature of sandy situations. It varies much in colour and markings, being sometimes of brown hue and sometimes quite green. Its usual colour is brownish-green. It lays eggs, a dozen or more in the sand, carefully covering them up and leaving the sun to hatch them. In the case of the common lizard the young hatch before birth and come into the world as perfect little lizards.
