The recent reduction in opening hours of the VC has resulted in poor old Badger becoming lonely. The consequence became known today when we were introduced to Badger’s new friend; a common lizard.
Edit – This common or viparous lizard is a good example of the variation in colour they exhibit. This green colour is not uncommon and results in many people mistakenly identifying them as sand lizards. However sand lizards are larger, have a differently shaped head and the green is much more vivid.
