Took this on a recent holiday to Sorrento but I've no idea what it is. It was happy to pose for the camera for a few seconds.

Any ideas?

I don't know what it is, but it's a hansome devil.

And that is a PERFECT shot!

Well done!

That's a gorgeous shot

As for ID - do you have a shot of its back as that might help. A very quick Google came up with:

but herpetology isn't something I've looked into.

This is one of the best shots i've seen of the "Lesser known Sorrento Lizaed"

Fantastic capture, I bet you put superglue on the rock

Yep, this is fantastic - crisp focus, with a background that sets of the skin just right.

Thanks for comments guys. It is a crop and the only shot out of about 8 that I managed to get in focus and exposed anywhere near correctly. I was surprised how crisp it looked after the crop.

Still working on the ID!
