In the actuality can find a big quantity of animal species loomed that they find in the list of the UICN cataloged like animals in danger critic of extinction, and in this occasion go to fix our sight in the giant lizard of The Iron, a species that every time is more complicated to see in the half natural Spanish during our escapes.
This characteristic lizard finds classified in the category CR of the list of animals in danger of extinction made by the UICN, what means that hardly they remain copies in freedom.
The true is that in spite of that his habitat is the island of The Iron (Spain), although you realise routes by the zone every time results more complicated can see any of these copies in freedom, and is that his state sees aggravated satisfied go happening the years by very distinct reasons.
One of the main enemies of the giant lizard of The Iron is the fact that his habitat sees divided and every time goes mermando more his extension. Fundamentally, this appearance depends of the man, since the fact to build new roads, populations, cities, etcetera does that many of these species and groups of the same see forced to separate .
To solve this situation, in some autovías install some bridges with vegetation that allow the step of ones to other zones, doing that this division was less aggressive. However, the high cost of these bridges does that many times we do not observe the sufficient, and the situation beyond all doubt sees aggravated increasingly.
But this is not the only risk of the giant lizard of The Iron, but the fact that animal species foráneas have gone in to the island, and especially the circumstance that many of them are predatory, definitely do that the number of copies see diminished. To his time, of between these new species, also find other that without being predatory also affect to the lizard by a simple reason, and is that they go in in competition by the food.
Thus, from Canaries has begun a program of conservation through the cual keep a main control of the number of copies, boost the reproduction, keep the child in captivity and especially realise a more exhaustive control of the predatory as it is the case of the cat.
By general norm, this lizard does not be used to to surpass the 60 cm of long, and fundamentally can it find in zones more arid. It stands out his long tail and some stains of yellow colour that can observe in the sides of the animal.
Fundamentally it feeds of plants and insects and in relation with the reproduction and child are animal oviparous that realise his put of until 13 eggs in the month of May.
Beyond all doubt, it treats of a lizard that is worthwhile to conserve for being very characteristic and a seriously loomed species.
