Sharp Snouted Blue Rock Lizard (Lacerta/Dalmatolacerta oxycephala) are an attractive, hardy lizard species native to South-Eastern Europe; mainly Croatia, Serbia and Montenegro. They are sexually dimorphic with the males being bright blue and the females are a slightly duller colour. They are a relatively easy species to keep but are not the best for handling as they are incredibly fast and as juveniles are very small and slender making them excellent escape artists.
