European Green Lizard (Lacerta viridis) are an attractive, hardy lizard species native to Southern Europe. They are sexually dimorphic with the males being bright green with wide heads and a blue throat 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.
