Lizards and the sun

The sand lizard and the common lizard

Like other reptiles, the lizard is cold-blooded and completely dependent on the rays of the sun in order to be active.

It takes approximately six minutes for the lizard to warm through.

Once warm, it can hunt insects for a couple of minutes but must then 'recharge' by taking another sunbath.

Along Fodsporet there are plenty of piles of dry wood, a perfect habitat for both lizards and insects.
