Ratas Island lizard
|Ratas Island lizard|
|Subspecies:||P. l. rodriquezi|
|Podarcis lilfordi rodriquezi
The Ratas Island lizard once lived on a rocky island in the bay of Mahón, Minorca (Spain). But the island, which was its habitat, was destroyed when Port Mahon was rebuilt. The last sign of this subspecies was in 1950 and it seems to be extinct. Four specimens of this European reptile are conserved in museum collections.
