The viviparous lizard (a lacerta) is the only lizard whose range extends into the Arctic circle. Wall lizards can survive very cold winters; I would assume that they're blood contains large amounts of glycerol or some other 'anti freeze' during hibernation because many species live in Germany where the temp often gets to -10 C.

Come on, just because you haven't seen them does not mean they aren't there!
