Sand lizard foil greeting card
A full image of the sand lizard, one of the UK’s rarest reptiles. The striking green flanks are highlighted through the use of foil to show the true colourings of this reptile. An original design by Courtenay Holden.
Sand Lizards are one of the UK’s rarest reptiles – due to dramatic habitat loss they now only naturally occur on sandy heathland in Surrey, Dorset and Hampshire and coastal sand dune systems in Merseyside. A captive breeding programme has reintroduced sand lizards to further sites in these areas and restored its range with releases in North Wales, Devon, Cornwall and West Sussex. Sand Lizards have a stocky appearance and the males are easily recognisable by their bright green flanks.
Distribution : Native to the UK. One of the UK’s rarest reptiles. Patchy distribution with populations found in coastal areas in the south and west of the UK. Small population found on Isle of Coll in Scotland. Found across most of Europe, Mongolia, southern Russia, northern China, and northern Turkey. Reintroduced to sites in North Wales, Devon, Cornwall and West Sussex.
The design is printed with ultra fine silver foil then overprinted with ink – creating depths of colour variations and tints with a metallic effect. The image has been designed to shine in any light source to reveal the many colour tones, enabling the subject to be as true to form as possible.
