European wall lizard
According to sources such as canada.com
......back in 1970 a roadside zoo east of Victoria closed and stupidly let their lizards go. That means the European wall lizard is an invasive species in B.C. and therefore a potential threat to the native northwest alligator lizard which is similar and occupies similar habitats. These include rock faces, open woodlands and even man-made structures such as walls, railways and roadsides. So far it's confined to Greater Victoria, but given how comfortably it's made itself at home there, that could change.
