Welcome to EUROLIZARDS by Birgit & Peter Oefinger!

These pages put a strong focus on European lizards, an amazing group of reptiles with a stunning diversity. Due to its limited megafauna, European wildlife reveals its beauty in small creatures like insects or birds - and lizards! Hence, these animals are an impressive example of Europe's natural heritage. In times of rapidly decreasing biodiversity, we believe it is worth generating a platform to give these animals the attention they deserve. 


Join us on our herpetological trips to hidden places and magic landscapes. Browse through our comprehensive photo documentation of the European Lacertid Lizards. Have fun with our pages!

silence, defined by the noise of insects,

a perfect day...
