Synopsis

The Giant Lizard of Gran Canaria (Gallotia stehlini), is a documentary shot completely at Gran Canaria Island, where the last saurans in Europe and Africa are left.
For centuries, mystery has surrounded these colossal dragons that lived on far away islands that had never been reached by the man.
These reptiles, descendants of the legendary dinosaurs, evolved differently from their mainland cousins, which made them unique.
There is archaeological evidence proving the existence of these large lizards on the islands, now, their descendants have adapted to different conditions on each island. The species evolved to be unique in the world, turning it into living treasures from a colossal past.
