Lizards in New England

ColinWe found the Italian Wall Lizard, Podarcis siculus, in Connecticut, New York, and Boston. I’m anxious to learn more about the first lacertid in New England.

How did it get here? How many are here now? How might it interact with other species in the region? How does it survive our cold winters? Stay tuned here as we learn more.
