I’ve just returned from a week in Tenerife in the Canary islands. Not a herping trip but an escape from the British Christmas madness but I still had lots of fun photographing the island’s endemic lizards Gallotia gallotia and Chalcides viridanus. Click here or the photo below to view the photo gallery. Many thanks to Wolfgang Wüster and Andrew Gray for some hints for the trip.
