Northern Tenerife (gallotia galloti)
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The lizard native to the Canary Islands is, not surprisingly, called the West Canaries Lizard (gallotia galloti).|
The Northern Tenerife Lizard is a sub-species, as its name suggests, found in the north of the island, mainly the Puerto de La Cruz area.

What a beautiful lizard you have posted today. Love the vivid colors and fine detail you managed to capture. The blue colors under it's chin and lower belly are a real eyecatcher. I would have to assume because of the color differance, that at one time during it's life it lost a part of it's tail and then regenerated it back. Great work!!
