Gallotia (Lizard)

Wikipedia Abstract

The genus Gallotia are the lacertids (wall lizards) of the Canary Islands. This genus consists of a group that has been evolving there ever since the first islands emerged from the sea over 20 million years ago. The endemic species and subspecies of this group have a number of characteristics that make them quite special within their family; their only close relatives are the sandrunner lizards of the western Mediterranean region.
