Update 7/17/21:  This is the last group of baby Jeweled lacertas that I will have for the year! Once this group is sold out, that's it. Get them while you can.


The Jeweled lacerta, also known as the Occelated or Eyed lizard, is a medium sized lizard native to southwestern Europe. If I were only able to keep and breed one species of lizard they would be it. They have so much going for them: hardy, active, prolific, not too big or small, colorful, interesting social behaviors, and intelligence. It’s hard for me to pick another lizard that has all of these positive attributes.


Available are unsexed juveniles from two different pairings. I produce both melanistic (all black) and the normal colored variety. I have a detailed article on their care and breeding published on my website.
