Lizard ID - Alicante Province, Spain

This blighter hid in full site for a couple of photos - this is the best by far sadly but I was hoping for some help with ID.

Your lizard is a Spiny-footed Lizard Acanthodactylus erythrurus. They are not particularly shy lizards hence you can get pretty close to them. They like sandy ground with scattered vegetation.

Chowchila is spot on. Nice adult Spiny-foot.
