LIZARDS AND SNAKES

Pitiusas lizard (Podarcis pityusensis)

From 1979, Professor in Biological Sciences Antònia Maria Cirer Costa visits the islets and places on the island of Ibiza where the Pitiusas lizard is found (Podarcis pityusensis) to observe this species, the most emblematic of the islands. If this species is in danger, the entire ecosystem is in danger. Therefore, the threat of snakes introduced to Ibiza is a serious problem for the island..

In the reserve of lizards of the Biotechnological Botanical Ibiza you can find these small reptiles in their habitat, preserved from the danger posed by the invasive species. A good number of snake traps have been installed around the botanical garden to protect this space from invasive species..

The Phoenicians dedicated the island of Ibiza to Bes protector of the home and deity that drives away snakes, where they did not exist. With the arrival of globalization, the goods arrive in large containers from different parts of the world where it is very easy for them to come with all kinds of parasites. The arrival of ancient trees from other parts of the world, especially olive trees, that are used to ornament the gardens of large mansions has been, and is, breeding ground for the entry of invasive animals or plants into their holes that have found an ideal habitat to spread on the island. Ecological competition favors snakes, since in the places where they are detected, no lizards. Do not coexist.

An efficient ecological fight between all parties is essential to stop the invasion of invasive snakes.
