Hi,

jewelled lacertas are among the least agressive Lacertas and hence in many cases is tis possible to raise them together in groups. The bigger the group, the better.
If there are only 3-5 individuals left over, ist not unusal that some dominate the rest. In this species this seldomly ends in severe fight, but the supressed specimens eat less and their groth becomes significantly retarded.
In such cases only strict seperation helps.
I do have 4 leftover juveniles form the last clutch (and 12 more to incubate) and I ended up with each baby in a seperate tank.
You can easily run into space problems with this, since some specimens can reach 20" in their first year.
Also females can produce fertile eggs wehen they are just 9 months old.
Upon spares feeding (recommended) growth takes longer but animals reach same sizes.

Hope that helps

Ingo
