    1. Friendly enough to a close up macro :D But yes, they seem not to be afraid of human presence. A friend of mine gave a peace of an apple and he took it from its hand ;) Posted one year ago, modified one year ago

''Acanthodactylus erythrurus'', commonly known as the spiny-footed lizard, is a species of lacertid lizard endemic to northwestern Africa and the Iberian Peninsula. It is considered to be the fastest member of the huge Lacertidae family. Its common name refers to the spines that are arranged like a comb on the toes of its hind legs.
