I have a breeding pair.
Beuatiful lizards, but do not forget that they grow big.
My male reached 20 " within 9 months and 3 ft specimens have been recorded.
Even though the averadge specimen does not exceed 2 ft, they are as agile as any Lacerta and henc eneed a lot of space. Mine inhabit a tnak with a floor space of 6 x 5 ft and sometimes I still think that is pretty small.
So I would recommend 5 x 3 x 3 feet as a very minimum. In smaller cages you won´t sdee much of their agility and I think any strong behavioural cnage tells you tha sth in the setup ois not OK.
So big tanks for big guys.
