Dune Digger This is the Bedriaga's Skink found in Eastern Spain. Although widespread in Spain these guys are found in isolated populations with increasing habitat destruction. After a 40 minute train ride and 7km hike I found the ideal habitat for these guys. Woke this one up from his slumber even though the weather was reaching 20C. Hoping to have more quality pictures and species coming up as the weather warms and spring approaches.
