This is a Green Lizard, no, not a lizard that is green, it is of the species Green Lizard.
They are native to the Chanel islands. This one is a female as you can tell by the blue throat, they only have these in the breeding season.
This image was taken at Wildwood in Kent in the UK. This is a great place for "Nature Photography" as all the animals allthough enclosed are kept in a natural enviroment. The whole place is set in an ancient woodland and only has animals that are or were native to the UK and introduced species. The natural enviroments in the enclosures do mean that you may not see some of the animals and you really have to look quite hard, it took 3 visits throughout the day to see this one.
