A threatened species of British lizard is due to be released in Talacre in North Wales today following a successful breeding programme between Chester Zoo and partners.
Sand lizards were once commonly found on dunes and heathland, but became endangered as a result of the gradual destruction of their habitats.
It's believed they went extinct in Wales around 60 years ago, but after being hatched and reared by keepers around 400 lizards are due to be reintroduced to the wild.
