The European sand lizard (Lacerta agilis) is one of the smallest species of lacerta fully grown around 6" including the tail. This makes them one of the easier species to keep due to their modest space requirements compared to their larger cousin the jeweled lacerta. This is also the most communal species of lacerta that I have kept where one male and multiple females do well together. Most lacertas do best as male-female pairs. The males are extremely beautiful showing some shade of bright green or even blue in some cases. This is one of the most bold of all lacerta species and they make wonderful displays. I am the only person currently breeding this species in the USA but I hope that will change as I start to release captive bred offspring from my breeding group.
