  1. I am incredibly jealous of your reptile pictures! I try to produce images like these but they don't seem to come out like this. Nicely captured! Posted 6 years ago

    1. Thank you.

      I have no secrets, can only give a few tips.
      • Much much much much much patience! :)
      • Take pictures if possible in the morning.
      • The animals tapping on certain poses with a snake hook, a thin branch or blades of grass. Then they sit mostly. NEVER use your hands!!!
      • Watch out for the own shadow!!!

The sand lizard is a lacertid lizard distributed across most of Europe and eastwards to Mongolia. It does not occur in the Iberian peninsula or European Turkey. Its distribution is often patchy.

The sand lizard has a light underbelly and a dorsal stripe: males tend to be darker and colour and turn partly or wholly bright green during the mating season. Sand Lizards can reach up to 25 cm in length.

It has several subspecies, the westernmost of which is ''Lacerta agilis.. more
