Scorned Lizard

The Vancouver Sun has a profile of a very interesting urban critter: the European wall lizard (Podarcis muralis). The reptiles are an invasive species in British Columbia, having escaped from a zoo back in the 1970s. The European wall lizard has also established populations in the states of Indiana and New York.

Bonus points to the Sun for using the lizard's scientific name.
