Dragons of Madeira

Rumours say that the cats and dogs are the owners of the Madeiran streets. But the truth is the power over the whole island is hold by the light-speed fast tetrapods which spent the whole day in the sunny places around the every corner of the island.

So far around the island were spotted four spieces of them.


Madeiran wall lizard. Endemic reptile distinctive with its dignity and colourful image. Willingly consumes ants 🐜 and bananas🍌. Is often seen jumping in flower bush and hiding in the rocks.

Common wall Gecko. The climber who is often seen at the ceiling.
