Now is a good time to spot Common Lizards (also known as the viviparous lizard because it gives birth to live young) as they bask in the sun.
They can live almost anywhere, but they prefer reasonably warm, sheltered places with good basking sites. They feed on insects and also snails.
The female gives birth to 3-12 young from June – September and the young feed actively from birth and disperse quickly. Common Lizards hibernate from October – March.
