Sand lizards occupy large parts of Europe. On warm days they can be found in sunny places, protected by the cold wind. Their diverse colouring and short tail are especially noticeable. Loss of habitat is the largest threat to the sand lizard. Right now they are on the watch list for endangered species and are protected throughout Europe.
