Ocellated Lizards (Timon lepidus) are an attractive, hardy lizard species native to Southern Europe. They are sexually dimorphic with the males being bright blue/green with wide heads and the females greenish brown with a narrower head. They are a relatively easy species to keep but are not the best for handling as they are incredibly fast; however they will become used to human interaction making them easier to work with in the vivarium.
