[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Eastern Green Lizard (Lacerta viridis) may also be known as an European Green Lizard when grouped together with the Western Green Lizard, which has a few more spots. These lizards can often be seen sunning themselves on rocks in Eastern Europe. It feeds on insects, smaller lizards and even mice. In springtime the female lays 6 to 20 eggs. About 2 to 3 months later brown-coloured young appear with a length of 3-4 cm. Adult size is 12cm. The tail can be up to twice the length of the body and can be detached to evade the catch of a preditor.
